Religious Artifacts Collection

French Canadian 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.

Another highlight 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.
