This museum encases the stories and cultures of the communities of Whitemouth, Seven Sisters Falls, River Hills, and Elma; and tells the story of how these towns have grown into the beautiful communities we know today and how they helped shaped Manitoba.

Throughout the museum, you’ll find a world of fascinating facts, stories, artifacts and displays like a 1929 train caboose, a 1909 pioneer house, antique farm machinery collection, a blacksmith shop and log trapper’s cabin, a military M109 A4 Howitzer tank, and a whole artifact building with special treasures and unique items.

In 1875, Charlotte achieved her goal of receiving her medical certificate from the Women’s Medical College in Philadelphia. From 1881 to 1912, she practiced medicine in the region – even though she was not allowed to hold a medical license in the Province of Manitoba during that time.
