Memory Mondays- The Barn

The barn that now sits on our property with the Backus-Page House Museum was originally the stable down at the Manse beside St. Peter's Church.  In 1896, the original stable burned and the new one was erected later that year.  In 1965, Alistair Littlejohn bought the barn to use as a sugar shack, however the man who was going to move it passed away.  Eventually, the Littlejohn family decided that the museum would be a great place for the barn's new home and in 2005 it was moved to where it sits today.  We now have regular tours of the exhibit housed in the upstairs of the barn Tuesdays through Fridays during open hours.  Come and check it out and have a great week!
