OPG – Otto Holden Dam – New exhibit at the Museum

This is a project we’ve been working on over the winter for an unveiling this season.

If you had family/friends who may have worked at the Dam back in the day and would be able to share pictures and/or stories, we would like to include it in the audio/visual part of this exhibit. Send your photos, stories to info@mattawamuseum.ca.

Perhaps you currently live in one of the old “hydro houses” that were moved from the Village at Otto Holden to town?

We are reaching out to community to ensure that we include local stories. We invite you to share!
