The OOBMITS project contains 28 panels in the Old Orchard Street vicinity, Ocean Park and Salvation Army area with one larger introductory panel by Milliken Street.

The individual site panels contain photos and a description of each of the sites and the larger introductory panel contains a map of the entire tour and a brief description on Museum in the Streets©.

Panel Description:

  • Site Panels measure 20×20 inches.
  • Introductory Panels measure 48×64 inches.
  • Panels are made from Formica and guaranteed for 10 years.
  • Panels include historical photos, with a written history in both English and French.

In December of 2017, all 28 panels were sponsored!! Public Works Staff worked diligently in a very tight timeframe to install all of the panels for our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on June 14, 2018.

We are still accepting general project donations to help replenish our maintenance fund as well as continue to produce brochures to guide the project.
