Celebrate Black History Month - A Toronto Star Feature
A flag-raising ceremony earlier this month at the Civic Centre in Chatham celebrated the first day of Black History Month.
Despite COVID-19 closing the doors on and off the Buxton National Historic Site and Museum throughout the pandemic, Shannon Prince, curator of the Buxton National Historic Site and Museum, said the online connectivity has allowed visitors to reach out and learn about the site virtually.
She said Buxton has teamed up with the Driftscape tourism app. The app allows for virtual tours, highlighting aspects of the site and surrounding area.
“It’s an excellent app,” said Shannon Prince. “Even though we’ve been open and shut, we’ve been still reaching people. We’ve still been busy, despite being shut down.”
