The wait is over! Episode two is now here! The White Rock Museum & Archives is proud to present the second episode of a series of video quizzes being developed.

The second White Rock History Quiz can be found on YouTube.

White Rock Museum & Archives is grateful for the technical and production assistance of Mark Roland Henning from Boutique Empire Studios. Together with the quiz’s author and presenter, Hugh Ellenwood, White Rock Museum & Archives, Archives Manager, they have created an engaging and challenging test of people’s general knowledge of White Rock history. Many thanks to the City of White Rock’s Arts & Culture grants for their funding assistance.

“We had a lot of fun making these videos and look forward to making more of them. We wanted to offer people something fun to watch during the pandemic.” – Hugh Ellenwood

Staff and leadership at the museum are committed to reaching out to and engaging the White Rock community. Our mission is to preserve our community’s heritage, reveal our community’s story, share stories worth telling, and welcome everyone. The White Rock History Quiz is one of the projects that has resulted from addressing the opportunities within the challenges of closure and distancing.

More quizzes are in development for the future, as well as a video adaptation of Hugh Ellenwood’s popular historical walking tours, so subscribe to the White Rock Museum & Archives YouTube page to receive notifications.

The White Rock Museum & Archives is located at 14970 Marine Drive in the historic 1912 train station on the waterfront. For more information, please visit or call 604-541-2221.
