Hear the Most “Unbelievable” Stories in Vancouver History


Join the Museum of Vancouver on Thursday, August 17 for an evening of hard to believe Vancouver stories courtesy of local historians John Atkin, Rob Howatson and Mike Harling.

The unlikely Canadians who helped the Coal Miner’s Daughter achieve her American Dream, the Country star who suppressed the truth about her own origin story… these are just a few of the stories that will be uncovered at Talk & Tour: Unbelievable Vancouver Stories!

Local historians will divulge the city’s strangest happening and happenings, perhaps revealing the weirdest occurrence of them all, that they’re all true! One of the more curious Vancouver stories yet to be embraced by the mainstream media is the tale of country music star Loretta Lynn being discovered in a Fraserview chicken coop in 1959. Hmm…

Talk & Tour: Unbelievable Vancouver Stories is part of the Museum of Vancouver’s Unbelievable, a provocative exhibition about our perception of stories in a Post-Truth World. The exhibit will feature artifacts that illustrate the tangled threads of narrative around Vancouver, it’s development, relationships with First Nations communities and more. It’s been described as “A shockingly diverse collection of objects will provoke laughter, nostalgia, and fear” and runs at the MOV until September 24, 2017.
