Welcome to the Missisquoi County Museum
Located just an hour from Montreal in Quebec’s beautiful Eastern Townships along the Route des Vins (wine route) and the Chemin des Cantons (Townships Trail), the Missisquoi County Museum invites you to discover the historic diversity and delights of this charming region.
Headquartered in an 1830 three-story red-brick grist mill in Stanbridge East, the Missisquoi County Museum features exhibitions and education programmes which explore the many individuals and events that contributed to the historic development of Missisquoi County.
Our collection is housed in three different buildings:
The Cornell Mill
As you explore the main site of the Missisquoi County Museum you will be immersed in the fascinating story of the individuals and families and the conflicts and enterprises that shaped the history of Missisquoi County over the past 200 years.
Hodge’s General Store
Our quaint general store was built in 1841 and served the local community for 120 years. It now contains an extraordinary collection of authentic merchandise from the era of the Great Depression and World War II. Just a short walking distance from the main museum, Hodge’s Store is truly a place where time stood still.
The Walbridge Barn
Classified as a provincial historic building in May 2004, the Walbridge Barn in Mystic (St. Ignace-de-Stanbridge) Quebec, is one of the most beautiful gems of Quebec’s architectural heritage. This dodecagonal (12-sided) barn is the only one of its kind in the province. Exhibiting the Missisquoi County Museum’s agricultural collection in the immense Walbridge Barn renders this site an advanced centre for the interpretation of agricultural life in Missisquoi County prior to World War II.
Open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from the last Sunday in May to the second Sunday in October. The administrative office is open year-round.
