East Beaches Heritage Wing acknowledges,

These are the traditional lands of the Anicinabe and Cree, who have hunted, fished, trapped, gathered and made their home here, for countless generations. We are a Metis community in the heartland of the Metis Nation.

This is Treaty No 1 territory, entered into on August 3, 1871. Whether you are Indigenous or Settler, we are all treaty people. We acknowledge and respect our family and neighbours and move ahead in a spirit of reconciliation.



East Beaches Heritage Wing

The EBHW museum is closed for the season.
* See you again in the spring of 2023.

The Heritage Wing is a small, interactive museum that tells the story of the lake and people of the East Beaches. From Stoney Point to the tip of Elk Island, we are the East Beaches.

At the museum you can… Check out what’s in the aquariums. See a real treaty metal. Open the drawers of the artifact case. Flip through the digital photo album of the early days to see if you know anyone. Listen to the stories told by friends and neighbours of how they put food on the table back in the day. Send the model train around the diorama of the railway resort at Grand Beach. Check out the 1920’s bathing suits. Scroll through the Beach Memories digital photos and videos. Try the pay phone to hear messages from local vendors. Watch a movie at Harry’s Hideout.

We may be small but we are packed full of things to hear, see and do. You will have to visit again and again to experience it all.

All this is made possible thanks to the RM of St. Clements and grants from the provincial and federal governments and various foundations, along with donations from people like you.

The museum is managed by the East Beaches Heritage Committee, made up of representatives from the various East Beaches. Contact the East Beaches Heritage Committee at EBHWmuseum@gmail.com

* We may be available for school and tour groups in the off season, when the GMCC building is open. Please contact us by email if you are interested in a group tour, minimum of 10 people.
