Satellite Exhibits: As part of their mandate to preserve and present Fernie’s history, the Fernie & District Historical Society has created a series of satellite exhibits in local businesses and public spaces. Some venues are: Carosellas, Memorial Arena, Heritage Library, Seniors Centre, Ski & Bike Base, Visitor Centre and the Vogue Theatre. In most cases, the themes of the exhibits compliment the locations.
