King's Point Heritage Society Inc.

Tourism Region: Green Bay

A family donated a 2-storey house built in 1904 to the Society to restore as a heritage house & museum for our community. We have also obtained the carcass of a 50ft, 80ton humpback whale. After cleaning & curing the skeletal remains, it will be re-assembled for display. Whales are constant visitors to our bay. We have also registered for an archaeological dig as evidence of Maritime Archaic Indians have been found on local farms.
