Centennial Museum of Sheguiandah
Centennial Museum of Sheguiandah is located on Hwy 6 where it showcases splendid pioneer heirloom artifacts and historical photographs. It also hosts alternating art exhibitions and summer children’s art programs. The exhibit has a large variety of antique farm machinery and vehicles. An impressive collection of fossils and prehistoric stone tools were excavated from a 9,500 year-old archaeological site just north of the village where prehistoric inhabitants gathered a particular type of rock that was used for making cutting tools. A noteworthy relic of American President Roosevelt’s mail plane details the president’s vacation in McGregor Bay and the untimely crash of one supply aircraft. An historical walking tour of the village describes many other hidden points of interest. Ample parking, children’s playground, picnic area and washrooms are located among mature hardwoods. The museum opens Tue.-Sat. 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. during spring and fall and daily during summer; Thursdays in July and August until 8 p.m.
Nearby, Bass Lake Creek creates a pretty cascade beside the highway and past a replica of the water-powered Batman’s Sawmill. A viewing platform is located beside a fish ladder where jumping fish can be observed during spring or fall spawning runs.
