Niagara Military Museum finally gets a home

Corey Larocque, over at The Niagara Falls Review, has written a piece for that paper on the decision to allow the Niagara Military Museum "after a decade of trying to storm the gates of the Victoria Avenue armoury." The century-old building was declared surplus by the Department of National Defence and later purchased by the City of Niagara Falls. The Niagara Military Museum is to be given three rooms in the building to display its collection consisting "of artifacts that have been collected over the years by Niagara residents with an interest in military history." Larocque further writes: "The museum is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to commemorating both the military history that has occurred in Niagara and the wartime exploits of people from Niagara who fought in Canada's overseas conflicts, especially the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War."
