Mississauga Miracle - 40th Anniversary Exhibitions and Event
Do you remember the 1979 train derailment? November 10th marks the 40th anniversary of the Mississauga Train Derailment, also known as the Mississauga Miracle. This event saw over 240,000 residents evacuated from their homes; the largest peacetime evacuation in North America at that time. Fortunately, there were no deaths in the incident. To commemorate the anniversary, please join us for exhibitions and events taking place throughout Mississauga. Exhibitions, presented in partnership with Heritage Mississauga and the Museums of Mississauga, will be available at the Bradley Museum from September 21 - November 17, and at Heritage Mississauga “The Grange”, from October 29 - November 15. An Anniversary Event will take place on November 10 at Heritage Mississauga “The Grange” and complimentary refreshments will be provided; all are welcome to attend.
