Experience a journey through time!
Located just an hour from Montreal in Quebec's beautiful Eastern Townships along the Route des Vins, the Missisquoi Museum invites you to discover the historic diversity and delights of this charming region.
In 1830, Zebulon Cornell built a red brick gristmill beside the Pike River which operated for 130 years. Then, in 1964, the Missisquoi Museum was established in the 3 storey historic structure.
Your entry also allows you to visit Hodge's General Store with its counters, its showcases and its merchandise frozen in time. You may also drive by Mystic (St-Ignace-de-Stanbridge) to see an agricultural equipment exhibit presented in a 12-sided barn, the only one of its kind in Canada and classified as a provincial historic building since May 2004. The Walbridge Barn reveals the creative spirit of its builder, the industrial engineer and ''gentleman farmer'', Alexander S. Walbridge. As you explore these 3 sites, you will be immersed in the fascinating story of the individuals and families, the conflicts and entreprises that shaped the history of Missisquoi County over the past 200 years.
Open from May 27 to October 7, 2018
