The purpose of the Massey Area Museum is to collect, preserve, research, and exhibit these objects which will serve to illustrate the settlement and development of the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers and Sagamok Anishnawbek, up to 1968, the year the museum was founded. We recognize that understanding our local heritage is necessary to gain a better appreciation of community, province, and nation. The Museum collects artifacts and documents that depict the area’s past in terms of the earliest native settlement, early exploration, and first white settlement, the part played by natural resources in our community (lumber, minerals, waterways), agriculture, education, religion, cultural achievement, manufacturing, trade and transportation, business and municipal political development. The Museum provides for the preservation of such material as well as it possibly can, and for its availability to all who wish to see it.
