Initially, the museum was a place to showcase items that were relevant to life at Cape George, its people and how they lived. We have expanded to include the documentation, preservation and sharing of family histories, photographs, and the way life was lived and how it has changed over the years.

Our YouTube channel allows us to show old video’s we have obtained as well as adding new content for future history.
