Cobalt Historical Society Events
Selected Chapters in Temiskaming History
This symposium was held June 3rd, 2017 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at
the Classic Theatre, 30 Silver Street, Cobalt. 2017 Symposium details here.
Exciting speakers addressed a number of fascinating subjects concerning Temiskaming history. The mezzanine in the Classic Theatre was full, and the topics sparked lively discussion. The question already arose as to when we were having it next year. The answer is yes, it will be June 2nd, 2018, and we already have 3 speakers lined up.

We have had had two cancellations to the lineup for this year's symposium. We considered finding replacements, but we feel we do not have the time to find someone with suitable material that has not already been presented or published.
We will cancel the Symposium for 2018, and begin working on the 2019 event straight away. By giving ourselves adequate lead time, we can canvass our networks for speakers and give them enough time to develop talks for the coming years. It has been suggested that we hold the event every other year, and I think that idea has merit.
We have already booked the Golden Age Club for June 1, 2019
