The Civic Museum of Regina and the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame are partnering to celebrate Women's History Month this October through a variety of exciting initiatives that will engage the community with Saskatchewan Women in Sports.
We hope to turn the entire city into a museum for the month of October by creating pop-up displays in different locations around town. Our professional curatorial staff will work with businesses and community groups to curate existing spaces in a way that highlights Saskatchewan's incredible sportswomen and showcases different organizations' own connection to the sports community. Spaces can be non-traditional, but should be open to the public for some portion of the day. Visitors will be able to find and visit these museum sites through a special guide provided by the Civic Museum of Regina and Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
If you are interested in being a part of this program please email Gillian Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stained Glass Window
At the intersection of Lorne Street and 12th Avenue, the Knox Presbyterian Church was built in 1905, and rebuilt at a cost of $20,000 after being severely damaged by the Regina tornado of 1912. It was sold to SaskTel in 1952 and demolished. The congregation merged with the Metropolitan Methodist to become the Knox Metropolitan United Church.
The stained glass window was donated to the museum by the church in 1995.
Nine of the twenty-eight people killed by the 1912 tornado were associated with the Knox Presbyterian Church. The Knox Ladies Aid lost all of their silverware with the exception of one heavy teaspoon found 3 blocks away.
