When Opportunity Knocks: The Gibbard Block Sees Old Doors and Radiators to New Homes


The Highlands Historical Society was very fortunate to have been invited by Sparrow Capital (currently restoring the Gibbard Block) to send off old doors and old radiators for a new life.

The “doors and rads” from the Gibbard Block were offered by Sparrow Capital to anyone with a use in mind for these ornate and sentimental remnants. Sparrow Capital graciously hosted the Highlands Historical Society and accepted donations which will be reinvested in heritage initiatives in line with our mission: “To promote the awareness and preservation of historical resources within the Highlands.”


Sparrow Capital shows ongoing support for the Highlands Historical Society by hosting our monthly board of directors meetings in their state-of-the-art cowork meeting space in the Gibbard Block in Highlands beginning August 2019. They have also extended an offer to our members until June 1 offering 1 free month with any cowork space billed annually. Refer to our last blog post for more details on your member benefits.

We are excited to have received many generous donations at this event in honour of the Gibbard Block.


THANK YOU Sparrow Capital, and to everyone who is bringing new life to times past.IMG_2878[1]Photos Courtesy of Michael Mroch
