Home About Events History Our Buildings Web Links Donations


The Moosehorn Heritage Museum (M.H.M.) was created in 1974 as the result of local volunteers

recognizing the need to preserve, protect and display the artifacts used by our pioneer settlers,

enabling future generations to view our history.

The M.H.M. is an incorporated, non-profit organization operated by the M.H.M. Board of volunteers.

New volunteers are always welcome.

Since the museums inception it’s focus has evolved into a compound consisting of

five buildings depicting multiple eras of local history, local artists and an extensive

photographic library by Sid Watchorn.

CN Station – built 1918, closed 1982

The Buztynski House – built 1913

Masonic (Manitouwapa) Lodge No. 156 – built 1956/1957

CFS Gypsumville Radar Base Site – built 1961-1963, opened 1964, closed 1987

St. Thomas Church (Replica) – built 2007-2009, original built in 1915

Renovations and ongoing works have been made possible by donations, grants and fundraising.

The museum would not exit today without volunteers who have given freely of their time.

Volunteer duties include cleaning, recording, and displaying artifacts,

maintaining and cleaning the buildings and grounds, providing tours and hosting the Friday Coffee Group.
