--May 13, 2014.

Fifty objects featured from a collection of 20,000 artefacts! This year marks the 50th anniversary
of the founding of the Missisquoi Museum and the Missisquoi Historical Society will
acknowledge this milestone in the exhibit “50 Objects for 50 Years.” Based on the most
treasured objects in the collection, the museum will highlight the history behind each artefact
and celebrate the accomplishments of our community museum.

With its mission to protect and preserve the material history and heritage of Missisquoi County,
the Missisquoi Museum’s annual exhibitions and its involvement in the preservation of
Missisquoi County’s history have been central factors in encouraging an understanding of this
region’s past. We welcome you to explore this past with us and thank you for your support for
our community museum.

The Missisquoi Museum also highlights the history of the United Empire Loyalists, community
life in the 19th century, an impressive collection of agricultural objects housed at the 12-sided
Walbridge Barn and Hodge’s General Store, which features “Mr. Hodge” and his dry goods
from the 1940s.

Located just off Route 202 between Dunham and Bedford in the picturesque village of
Stanbridge East, come and explore this jewel in the Eastern Townships.

Open daily 11a.m. – 4:30 p.m. May 25th to October 12th, 2014.
