Musée Historique du Comté de Brome

Musée Historique du Comté de Brome Review

Several buildings, including the former County Courthouse dating back to 1859, the old firehall (fire station), and a former school, house an eclectic collection that include 19th-century farm tools, Native Canadian arrowheads, and military uniforms and a World War 1 Fokker aircraft. It all offers visitors a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Loyalists who settled the area after fleeing the American Revolution. The museum also maintains the Tibbits Hill Pioneer School, a stone schoolhouse built in 1834 to serve rural families—kids can find out what education was like in the mid–19th century.
