There's really no better place in this city to discover Celebrate 100 - The Sault's 100th anniversary of becoming a city than the Sault Ste. Marie Museum but there's also a lot of interesting history prior leading from the war of 1812. As part of those celebrations which kicks off this Saturday at the Sault Museum at 2pm, a new exhibition is now on display.

There you will find out pretty much everything that has happened in this city since it was just a settlement for explorers and natives. The new exhibit focuses on the time frame of the war of 1812 through to 1870.

For instance, the latest exhibit "Life in the Sault - a time of Change" is chock full of great information about the Sault before it became a town or one of the largest and most important hubs in the Great Lakes.

The museum collects, preserves, studies and exhibits artifacts and archival materials that illustrate the history and development of Sault Ste.
