St. Edmunds Township Museum

The museum is the former St. Edmunds Settlement School, which was opened in May 1967. The building, which dates back to 1898, houses land deeds and registers, together with many historical photographs and artifacts pertaining to the area. The ground floor has displays showing lumbering, fishing and hunting cultures that were the mainstay of the local economy for decades.

The upper floor is dedicated to marine history, displaying maps, descriptions of old boats and relics from shipwrecks. The exhibits provide an insight into the shipping industry at that time, with many examples of tools and how they were used.

An 1875 log house is furnished as it would have been in the 19th century including pots, pans, china and linen.
