This exhibition is part of the second instalment of the Community Remembrance Project
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.
The E. Roy Smith Room, named after Parry Sound's former mayor and one of the founding members of the Museum, is home to the Museum's permanent collection and tells the story of Parry Sound.
In this gallery, you can learn about shipwrecks, the logging trade, the early days of northern life, and much more.
