The West Parry Sound District Museum, commonly known as the Museum on Tower Hill, began as a group of dedicated citizens. Today the Museum continues to preserve and interpret the core cultural themes that carved the West Parry Sound District out of a rugged Canadian landscape and explores contemporary topics relevant to today's communities.

About the Curator:
Marianne Bourgeois was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. She attended Simon Fraser University and taught in Smithers, B.C. for ten years before moving across Canada with her husband. Given that Bourgeois would have had to qualify in every province they resided in, she choose to remain out of the classroom until the couple finally settled in Burlington, Ontario. Bourgeois finished her degree in History at McMaster University and worked as a supply teacher for thirteen years. Once retired and living in Parry Sound, Bourgeois utilized her education as well as her teaching experience and pursued an interest in museums by volunteering at the Museum on Tower Hill. She has been with the museum for the last seven years.
