Glengarry Pioneer Museum opens for 60th season

Glengarry Pioneer Museum

THE COUNTIES, Ontario - 2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the Glengarry Pioneer Museum, in Dunvegan.

The museum is happy to be opening on schedule this coming long weekend – May 21-23 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily.  

Several events are being planned for the summer and fall, such as the Smith-In Blacksmith weekend, Stitch In Time textile day, Music Under the Stars, an art show by the Glengarry Artists’ Collective, a new Honey Fair, and the popular Harvest Fall Festival and 1812 Living History weekend in September. The museum will also be going out on location to local fairs and even welcoming school trips back to the site. There is guaranteed to be lots to do for those who want to explore the area this summer.

The museum features 10 heritage buildings, including the Star Inn built in Dunvegan in the 1840s, as well as a freshly painted one-room schoolhouse, authentic artifacts over 150 years old, as well as new seasonal exhibits.

In addition, the museum’s gardening group has planned a modest plant sale for May 21. Various plants from the heritage garden and other perennial favorites were in need of dividing and voila, a plant sale was created! All proceeds from the sale will go back into the museum gardens.

If you’ve never been to the museum in Dunvegan before, it’s located at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 30. For more details, contact Jennifer Black at 613-527-5230 or visit our web site:
