The museum has a home!
On July 15, 2019 the museum acquired 12 acres of land that will be the new permanent home for our heritage organization.
The museum is very excited that this second phase has been completed, making way for our next few major projects such as:
Moving three heritage structures to the property
Building security fencing, landscaping & installing utilities
Constructing a pavilion structure to house and exhibit our many artifacts & stories.
Thank you so much to the New Haven Colony, R.M. of Rockwood & the Thomas Sill Foundation for their support of this land acquisition.
Watch as the museum grows, and grows...
In 1991, the privately owned Argyle Prairie Museum began in the lower level of the historic Brant-Argyle School. Over the next 18 years it grew to include several buildings and over 1,000 artifacts.
In 2009, the museum was gifted to the community of Argyle and a board of directors was struck to administer and guide it. As a community-run, volunteer based non-profit organization, it gained charitable status from Canada Revenue Agency in 2013.
For almost 30 years, there has been a museum in Argyle; collecting, exhibiting, researching and preserving our shared heritage. With the 2019 acquisition of land, the museum is now able to grow and flourish!
