About the Museum:

The house section of our Museum is a Municipal Designated Heritage Building and depicts how a family lived in the Victorian Era. Three annexes are home to a large selection of artifacts depicting our local culture and heritage of our local community. We have a very large collection of photographs and albums that also depict our local heritage as well as: antique scrub boards, wooden washing machines, antique electric wringer washing machines, a school display, an actual small Post Office, hand carved Folk Art Display, antique hand tools, farming artifacts, modes of transportation (including Democrat buggy and sleighs)

We also have a military display including uniforms and military records documenting our local war veterans and those listed on our Cenotaph. The main floor of our Museum Home and all the annexes are wheelchair accessible. The Museum House has a very unique design with a turret section on the front corner.
