Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 1, Issue 4, December 1959
In presenting this volume of our Journal I wish to thank the many members and other friends of our Society for the manner in which all have maintained the work of gathering, classifying and recording the large quantity of historical matter which the Nelson Historical Society has continued to acquire for the future benefit of all interested.
The provision of suitable storage premises has, I feel, been brought much nearer; and it appears we are now nearing our goal of having our irreplaceable collections suitably housed and given organised protection and display. Experts tell us that the matter we have, or may have under conditions of safety, makes Nelson the envy of most other provinces.
In this publication will be found a brief summary of some of our activities since we issued our No. 3 Volume, and I trust the contents will be of interest to all who appreciate the history of their people and locality.
