The Shelburne County Museum, located in the town of Shelburne along the beautiful South Shore, houses an impressive collection of artifacts spanning more than two centuries of settlement in Shelburne County. Permanent exhibits display the area's Mi’kmaq, Loyalist, African, and Welsh heritage, its shipbuilding history, and what is believed to be the oldest fire pumper in Canada. The Museum's research room, available by appointment, contains locally relevant books, microfilms and documents, as well as genealogical information about Shelburne County families.
