Ailsa Craig & District Museum

Région touristique : Southwestern Ontario

The Ailsa Craig & District Historical Society exists to preserve the material history of North Middlesex, formerly known as East and West Williams and McGillivray townships, and the communities of Ailsa Craig and Parkhill. The artifacts are exhibited in the Ailsa Craig Baptist Church, 159 George Street, adapted to re-use as a museum. The archival holdings are housed in a Research Room adjoining the Trinity Chapel at 158 Church Street, also in Ailsa Craig. The Historical Society is non-profit and all monies gained are used to preserve and maintain present holdings.
