Built in Sowerby by John and Sandy McDougall, this log home dates back to 1879. It was relocated to the Museum site in 1974. It contains many artifacts used by farmers and loggers in the area. The Tourist Information Centre, souvenirs and beverages are available in the log home. Come and see the ambulance bed used by Tulloch’s Taxi to transport sick or injured residents, and the Ingram family’s fireless stove. There is a wide range of artifacts here, including local wedding gowns, WWII military uniforms, 1950’s era baseball uniforms, 25 years of Bind River District High School graduation programs and graduate names, items from the Inkster family farm in Dean Lake, and much more.
Originally built in 1890, the timber home of Lawrence and Andrena Tulloch/Carlyle was relocated to the Museum site from Bright Township. The home depicts the interior of a local farm home and contains artifacts commonly in use until 1939. Come see the homemade quilt quilted by Mrs. Charles (Mary) Rosenburg c. 1903, the Tait Family Bible from 1886, the Bell family table built over a hundred years ago with square nails, a Women’s Institute of Iron Bridge fundraising quilt embroided with many early residents names, a late 19th century hair weath made by Mrs. Annie (Henry) Eaket, and many more early 20th century artifacts used in every room of the early residents’ home.
