Country. Others have been donated to the museum. In all, more than
6,000 pieces are on display for your viewing and learning pleasure,
and cover a wide range of topics including religion, native history,
natural history, pioneer life, hunting and trapping, transportation,
fur trade, geology and paleontology, domestic history,
communications, agriculture, photography and education.
religious history is explored in an extensive collection of religious
clothing, furnishings and other artifacts. Many of these pieces were
collected from various mission sites in the Peace River region.
of the Museum's collection is the Trapper's Cabin reconstructed inside
the museum facility. The cabin was once the home of Nick Daddock, a
trapper who disappeared on the trails. His abandoned cabin, along with
his personal possessions, has since been moved to the interior of the
Museum, offering visitors an intimate look at the Fur Trade.
