We want to hear from you!

Starting this summer, we are developing a Strategic Plan for the South Frontenac Museum, and we'd like your input.

Whether you are a regular visitor to our Museum or have never been inside our doors, whether you live in the Township of South Frontenac or only visit a cottage here in the summer, or even if you occasionally travel up or down Road 38, we'd like to hear your opinion.

The South Frontenac Museum

We are dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of the people who have lived here over the centuries, of their struggles to scrape out a living for their families, and of the geology of this amazing landscape that defines and constrains the economic options.

We have a lot of work to do and need your participation!

We need extra­verts to serve as docents wel­coming visitors to the museum;  we are looking for creative types to develop new exhibits;  there are jobs for detail-oriented people to catalog new arti­facts;  and his­tory junkies can re­search and document our artifacts for our records or website.
