Long Description:
Harry Lefevre Square is a community gathering place where performances and live music are held each summer. In the winter, the annual Christmas tree is displayed having the formal lighting ceremony held in November. Other events, buffets, ice cream socials and other events are held in Harry Lefevre Square. There's even a piano at the rear of the square, placed under a protective shelter for the enjoyment of all and sundry, particularly the sundry possessed of a modicum of musical talent.

At the front, north, end of the square, just off Columbia Avenue is a kiosk with maps of Rossland and area, a bit of Rossland information and a third map of the hiking and biking trails in and around Rossland.

This URHere Map is on the south side of the kiosk. It is the map and descriptive text for the Rossland Heritage Walking Tour. With many heritage buildings from the turn of the twentieth century, Rossland, built around a group of hugely rich gold and copper mining properties, has a great deal to offer the amateur historian. There are a total of 31 heritage properties on the tour, the brochure for which can be picked up at city hall, a half block west, or the museum, at the junction of Columbia Avenue and Highway 3B, 1.3 kilometres west.

That's the 1898/99 Bank of Montreal in the background in the pic below, number 20 on the tour.
