Welcome to the
Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum
Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum opened with the Dairy Day June 10, 2014. The work recording our area's past continues with the upcoming release of Claybelt Memories Volume 2, and Claybelt Tapestry 2 this summer.
As the summer is winding to an end , please go and visit the Museum and the new exhibits. We will be at the New Liskeard Fall Fair and our Harvest Supper is Wednesday September 24th. Poster available here.
We also have other local histories for sale: Dymond, Harley, Hilliard and Hudson Townships, Brethour Township 80th Anniversary booklet, Milberta S.S.#1A Kerns School book and Memories from Milberta Alexander Memorial United Church, as well as other souvenir and gift items.
The Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum needs your support. Memberships are only one way you can show your support. Donations are another way. Support for our fund raisers, purchases from our Gift Shop, even sponsoring special exhibits, go a long way to help. Volunteers are needed in a number of areas.
Most of all, we'd like you to visit us at the Museum. See for yourself what is happening. Admission is free, and the history is yours. Make this the year you come to see it all for yourself.
Founded in 1974, and moved to its present location in 2000, the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum offers unique insights into the history of the region. Exhibits are changed periodically to reflect what we know of pioneer life in the area from the 1880s through the 1950s.
Open during in the summer months, admission is free as the museum operates on donations at the door, sales from the Gift Shop, and through community efforts. As a tourist visiting, the insights add a lot to your visit in the area. As a resident, it is reassuring to know that our ancestor's efforts are being recorded, preserved and made available for research.
