The Georgian style structure was originally built as a school in 1862. Later, as a Centennial project in 1967, it became the present museum. Today the museum proudly depicts, in a comprehensive display, the story of Sir John Johnson and his Loyalist followers, who settled here during the American Revolution in 1784. The Nor'westers Company, an active competitor of the Hudson's Bay Company for the fur trade, explored and opened up much of western Canada and the United States. Some of the principal partners of the Company, such as Duncan Cameron, Hugh McGillis, David Thompson and John McGillivray, lived in this area. The Museum contains memorabilia relating to these men and the fur trade.
