Town's history in museum

Shayal Devi
Sunday, April 13, 2014

IT was a momentous moment for the people of Ba as they celebrated their town's 75th anniversary and the opening of a museum which chronicles the district's farming history.

Special administrator Praveen Bala said important events in the town's history had been recorded and put on show for the public.

"Local businesses have supported this initiative and this is how we have been able to finish the museum," he said.

The museum was officially opened by Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama, who revealed that exhibits would include a replica of the seal used by the then governor of Fiji, Sir Harry Luke, to officially proclaim Ba a township.

He said the museum provided the public with a window into the past and the younger generation should visit it to enhance their knowledge of the town's history.

"People need to feel a sense of belonging wherever they live, a town, a big city or a nation."
