Located in the first brick building in Dunwich Township, this community museum explores the local history and the early Talbot Settlement. The museum building is an 1850s Georgian-style home built by one of the first settlers in the area. Artifacts in the museum include items relevant to a typical early farming family and a chair belonging to Colonel Talbot. Run by the Tyrconnell Heritage Society, the site offers slide shows, costumed interpreters, walking tours, military re-enactments, and social and educational events.
