We invite members and the general public to the Annual General Meeting of the Yellowknife Historical Society, to be held on October 4, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Baker’s Centre. An update on the museum construction will be provided plus a slideshow of the work in progress this summer to complete renovations to the historic Giant Mine recreation hall.» more
Construction and repairs to the Giant Mine recreation hall are underway in July, August, and September 2018.

This is an important phase of construction for the proposed museum facility.» more
