Comox Archives and Museum AGM coming up

Comox Archives and Museum Society (CAMS) will be hosting its annual general meeting (AGM) on Saturday, March 23 at 2 p.m.

The AGM will be held in the Lion’s Den, located on the lower level of 1729 Comox Ave., Comox, below the Comox Museum.

The history of the Fort, also known as the Manor, will be presented by Pam Moughton, CAMS Chair. Located on Manor Drive, this English-style country house was built by Sir Ernest Willoughby Petter in 1938. It has a fascinating history and was once the site of prehistoric earthworks. Sir Ernest Petter is also famous in his own right and the building has an interesting history interwoven with intriguing ghost stories.

“The Fort is part of our current museum exhibit of notable historic buildings of Comox,” said Moughton. “Presently we are exhibiting buildings located within the original 1946 boundaries of the Village of Comox and the Nob Hill area. This will expand over time and there is always something new at the Comox museum.”

Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome.
