Heritage House exhibit explores past and present

Cayman Brac’s Heritage House is holding an exhibit featuring a “Now and Then” display.

“The … exhibit showcases photographs of various past and present buildings, structures, landmarks and traditions on Cayman Brac and Little Cayman,” said Heritage House program manager Saskia Edwards.

The presentation, which opened on Nov. 21, celebrates and highlights the changes and growth of the Sister Islands’ landscape, people and culture.

“There are numerous photos of various churches, schools, homes, government offices and private businesses ranging from the 1930s to the present,” Ms. Edwards said, noting that a number of fascinating photos from the National Archive are featured.

Artifacts such as an old radio, telephone and tools are also on display. Anyone who may not have had a chance to see the display this past weekend is encouraged to come and do so. The exhibit will run until March 31, 2017.”

As well as hosting the exhibition, the Heritage House is holding its regular craft markets every Thursday from 4-6 p.m. at the Cayman Brac Beach Resort.
