If you are wanting to trace your family heritage, this is a good place to do it. Extensive archives. The displays feature Debert army camp, and history of Truro area. We were hoping for more artifacts, but the enlarged old photographs were good.

This beautiful building will be of interest to 1)those seeking information on their own Colchester County roots and 2)those interested in history in general. The exhibits are nicely set up, and the staff/volunteers are more than willing to help you with your research.

What a great place to visit if you are interested in local history. Lots of nice displays that are changed from time to time, and usually a book sale in the basement. Very nice to visit for tea in the garden during the summer!
