Greetings from Knappton Cove!
We are so grateful to everyone who made this a productive year despite the challenges! Your donations make it all possible. This year has certainly taught us the value of a virtual world. While it's nice to be 'off-screen' and read real books and receive real letters in the mailbox (ours is on its way!), one advantage of delivering an electronic newsletter is the ability to send links to online resources. This year we added to our online presence and hope you'll enjoy these while you are not able to visit in person. Here are the various ways you can find us online:
You can also get to our website by scanning the QR code with your smart phone. This will appear on our postcards and other material. You'll find it on the bottom right corner of your newsletter. Try it out when you receive your newsletter!
With renewed interest in quarantine, our historic site hit the news this year in several memorable articles. Check out the latest one (Nov. 20) about the 'Year of the Rat'
by Elleda Wilson here
to find out about some of the research we've been doing. Other articles this year included, 'Containing Contagion'
by Barbara Lloyd McMichael and 'This Nest of Dangers: Knappton Quarantine Station was our bulwark from contagion' by Nancy Lloyd. Thanks to all of our local media partners!
From our videotaping project, to researching, to completing a new outdoor interpretive sign, you can read about what we've been doing while 'in quarantine' in our annual newsletter. If you are on our mailing list, you should receive it in the mail soon. To be added
to our mailing list, please reply to this email with your mailing address.
Once again, thank you for your support of this very unique historic place, proven so relevant against the backdrop of a global pandemic. Best wishes for a safe and healthy holiday as we are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
