"Your stories live here"

From Convent to Museum

The original portion of the Convent was built in 1854-57. A chapel was added in 1872, and the final significant addition of two top floors was completed 1896.

McCrae House

McCrae House is the birthplace of John McCrae (1872-1918), doctor, soldier and author of “In Flanders Fields”, the poem that captured the sentiments of World War I and is still recited today, almost 100 years later.

Volunteering

Volunteering at your community museum is a great way to meet new friends, learn about our history, interact with the public, and be involved!
