The Last Frontier

Last Frontier icon

This exhibit pays homage to the County’s Pioneer and works in conjunction with the Museum’s Permanent galleries to complete Bruce County’s history from the 1850s to the 1900s by telling the stories that occurred from the first Shanty through to the cultural development of the General Store.

Canadians and foreign visitors alike will reflect on the origins of their cultural heritage that formed the County by experiencing the stories of agriculture and the European settlers as farmers who made Canada their new home and developed the corner stones of our present communities. This exhibit will deal with topics that include Settlement, Immigration from Europe, Surveying and land sales, and Domestic activities while exploring Architecture, Business, Crime, Education, Religion, Services, Technology, Tourism, and Transportation.

Proudly presented by Enbridge and 98 The Beach.
