The Cranberry Portage Heritage Museum is temporarily closed until further notice due to COVID -19 pandemic. Once we are able to open we will post details of dates and times.
Please contact one of the directors or email email@example.com with any concerns or information.
Greetings from Cranberry Portage Heritage Museum
In the Covid 19 epidemic the Museum is considered a non-essential public building. It is now shut down to all visitors. We are hoping that this will soon be over, lives can return to normal, and we will be able to open the museum for the upcoming summer months. The directors will be having a meeting shortly to discuss opening the Museum for the summer months.
The Annual General Meeting for the CPHM has been postponed until further notice.
Membership renewals are due. If you are not yet a member, please consider joining the Museum. Membership details here.
The museum has a wall of Family History booklets completed by many of the Cranberry Portage families and these are very popular to visitors. If you have not submitted yours, Family History Questionnaires are available from the Museum.
The March newsletter reminds us of the importance of the museum, and of the distances in place and time which it helps to connect.
We look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible.
