Welcome to the special slideshow featuring 2010 Heritage Days' theme - Remember When...
The Philipsburg Heritage Days Committee identified a few landmarks that stood in downtown and surrounding areas, and over the last few weeks we gathered old photos and brief history of each building. We then went around and took photos of the current structures, trying to maintain the angle and location as best as possible. The end result is a slideshow showcasing old structures and their current versions.
