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 over 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!
