It all began at a picnic on August 18, 1897, on a farm in West Brome, Quebec. The event was the centenary of the first land grant made in Brome Township. The outcome was the Brome County Historical Society which was incorporated on March 9, 1898, and has since worked diligently to preserve the past for future generations.
Today, the Brome County Historical Society owns and maintains a number of heritage buildings,which welcome individuals and groups. The extensive archives delight history buffs and impress the most serious scholars, and the museum educates and entertains, with displays of artifacts once used by the early people of Brome County.
You are invited to journey back to the 19th century and still younger days of this historic region.
Museum is located at 130 Lakeside Road(Knowlton)
