Step Into The Past

Opened in 1962, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum consists of several nineteenth century log heritage buildings and artifacts. The museum's original structure started life as MacIntosh's Store in the 1840s. It then became the Star Inn, a stagecoach stop in the 1860s. It is this period that the inn is furnished to reflect...including the original barroom, believed to be one of the oldest in Eastern Ontario.
