The Freemasonry exhibit is now closed. 

Staff are in the process of finalizing details for our summer exhibit that will feature the history of transportation in our area. Although we admire the breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Shield - bare rock, immense pines, many sparkling blue lakes and rivers - we must also acknowledge the difficulties faced by our forebears when attempting to connect the Rainy River District with markets and social services elsewhere.

It was a slow process. Canoes were joined by ever larger steamboats on the waterways until the completion of the railroad stopped construction of a canal around the falls. Bush planes opened up remote communities not reached by rail. And finally, the highways east and west were interconnected with those going north and south.  

'Closing the Distance' will have a soft opening following the Easter weekend. A reception will follow later.
