Our collection includes archeological finds from the days of early French settlement and items from the homes of German and English settlers. The local Mi'kmaq native history and their relationship with the French is well known and detailed. Highlighted also are stories of traditional trades from fishing and transport during the 'Age of Sail', to agriculture, and lumbering which were the bases of the early economy.
