The museum documents the beginning of our community from the founding of the Baldoon Settlement by Lord Selkirk in 1804 to its success as an industrial hub in the mid-1900s. The town’s first industries included lumber mills and cooperages. Industry later transitioned to glass, sugar and automotive parts production. Agriculture also plays a major role in the local economy to this day.
We are very excited to have recently been recognized as a Bike Friendly business by the Canadian government. We offer refreshments and have a place to cool off with somewhere to park and lock up your bike. There are free maps available in our gift shop to help plan your route,
