Admission is free and donations are always welcome!
Late in the year of 1999, the Canada Atlantic District Church of the Nazarene donated the local Nazarene church, which had been out of use since 1991, to the society for one dollar. The society was able to lease the land where the last three factories stood and they had the church building moved about 2000 meters to the site. Since opening The Bass River Heritage Museum has had visitors from all around the world. The countless hours of work put in by a group of dedicated volunteers are apparent upon walking in the front door. The museum has a little bit of every aspect of Bass River history and so is sure to interest all its visitors, inspiring nostalgia in some and wonderment in others. If you’re in the area stop in and rediscover your family roots and learn about the village where the chair makers and their world-renowned chairs once thrived.
The Bass River Heritage Society continues working on gathering artifacts and information from all those who are willing to share. The community is greatly indebted to this group for all their work in preserving Bass River’s past.
