Cloyne Pioneer Museum

Established in 1983, the Cloyne Pioneer Museum is seeking a new Curator. The Museum is operated by the not-for-profit Cloyne and District Historical Society. The Society’s catchment area is the Highway 41 corridor from Kaladar in the south to Denbigh and Griffith in the north, as well as Flinton to the west and Harlowe to the east. Museum collections, both in artifacts and documents, reflect the history of this area beginning from settlement times in the 1850s, with emphasis on such themes as settlement and pioneer life, mining, logging, tourism and the building of the Addington Road.

The Museum is open mid-June until Labour Day and receives over 1,000 visitors during the summer. Students are employed throughout the summer to ensure the Museum is well staffed to receive visitors.

Margaret Axford has been serving as volunteer Curator for the past 20 years and is retiring from the position. The Curator liaises between the volunteer Board of Directors, students, membership and visitors.  Exhibit maintenance, receiving photos, documents and articles for display as well as archiving are part of the Curator’s duties.

If you wish to be a vital part of preserving our local history please apply to pioneer@mazinaw.on.ca or call 613-336-2203 for more information.
