HISTORICAL SOCIETY RECEIVES ARCHIVISTS' AWARD
THE HASTINGS COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY has won the 2017 Corporate Award from the Archives Association of Ontario for its support and promotion of the Community Archives of Belleville and Hastings County. Development of the Archives was a major project occupying the Society's time and energy over the past decade. The Society raised more than $300,000 towards the construction of the Archives; the rest of the project was supported financially by the City of Belleville and the County of Hastings. This is the first time the Corporate Award has been given to an historical society.
Located in downtown Belleville at 254 Pinnacle Street (the library building), the state-of-the-art research and archival storage facility adds another positive cultural activity in the heart of the capital of Hastings! The public area has been named the Gerry Boyce Reading Room, in honour of Gerry Boyce, author, historian and repository of many of Belleville's best-kept historical sagasl.
