About the Exhibit
Sarnia: We Built this City will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the City of Sarnia. Drawing from the Lambton Heritage Museum's collection of Sarnia material, this exhibit will detail how Sarnia has evolved from its 1914 declaration as a City up until today. One hundred years ago, on May 7, 1914 Sarnia became a city. The day was filled with celebrations and the crowd that gathered along Front Street gave a loud welcome to Canada’s Governor General, the Duke of Connaught and his daughter Princess Patricia. A small village sixty years earlier, Sarnia had grown into a major industrial, manufacturing and transportation centre.
This feature exhibit will explore how Sarnia has changed, the challenges it has seen and where the City is going in the future. The Museum is canvasing the residents of Lambton for contributions to the exhibit, including artifacts, stories and images which will be incorporated into the exhibit, both at the Museum and in the City itself.
