Sturgeon River House Museum

Sturgeon River House was established in order to promote and preserve the cultural and natural heritage of the population of the municipality of West Nipissing.

Our mandate: To depict the era of the fur trade from 1623 – 1879 and portray pioneer life in West Nipissing between 1978 – 1939. To promote the establishment of a local historical society in order to stimulate interest in heritage matters; To describe the cultural contributions of our three pioneering groups: the Native People, the French and the English.

Located on the site of the Hudson’s Bay Trading Post dating from 1848-1879, this local museum exhibits objects from the area’s pioneers, a trapper’s collection and other items from the late 19th century until the beginning of the 20th century.

Guided tours and a nature hiking trail are offered onsite.
