Music in Merrickville

On December 15 2018, MDHS installed a new exhibit at the Merrickville Public Library. Music in Merrickville explores the role music has played in creating social connections and community bonds in Merrickville, specifically through the Merrickville Citizens Band. Showcasing music and musical instruments from 1880 to 1926, this exhibit demonstrates the way music expressed the close-knit, autonomous community in Merrickville.
