Sports History Recognized in Queens

One-hundred-year-old skates, antique jerseys and black and white photos now occupy a small corner of Queens Place Emera Centre.

About 40 people were on hand for the unveiling of a new rotating exhibit put on by the Queens County Museum.

Director Linda Rafuse says Queens County is full of rich sports history.

"We're a great sports community, always have been," she says. "So, our role as a museum is to preserve that heritage, that history, and sports is included in that."

She says the exhibit is a great opportunity to show off artifacts that may get missed in their every growing collection.

Rafuse says they've started with hockey, but will change up the display every four months or so.
