Searching for Hindman's History

Owen Sound | by Daryl Morris  

Owen Sound Marine and Rail Museum is looking for some help with an exhibit.

The Owen Sound Marine and Rail Museum is looking for some help putting together another exhibit.

The "Owen Sound's Harbour Jewel: The Diamond Steamship Company" exhibit will open April 17th.

But in the weeks leading up to that, Curator Mindy Gill says they're looking for any former employees or relatives of employees of the Hindman Transportation Company.

The shipping company ran out of Owen Sound for over 30 years, one of the longest privately owned companies to run on the Great Lakes.

Gill says they are looking for memorabilia from the company, but also for stories and memories to include in the exhibit.

She says it's important to include the public because it's part of local history, and close to the hearts of people who were associated with that company.

Anybody with anything to contribute to the exhibit should get in touch with the Owen Sound Marine and Rail Museum.
