Welcome Centre / Gallery

The newest addition to our site, completed in 2014 is our Welcome Centre. This is where you will start your guided tour. Here we house displays on local history and community activities of the past. Our newest display shows the Acadians ties with the nearby Roman Catholic Church (St. Anselms), the old school in Grand Desert, and the Mi'kmaq community. See if you can recognize any of the places on our 3-D map display of West Chezzetcook, and learn about a railway that once ran through the area. The Welcome Center is also used to host arts and crafts activities, and is the home of our gift shop and local art displays.

For those of you who are curious about your ancestry, come into our genealogy room to look through our records to make some new discoveries. If you want to dig even deeper, we recommend you contact the Eastern Shore Archives to help with your studies of the past.


Browse our display of locally made paintings and photography. Study our latest addition, a watercolor style acrylic mural painting depicting the industries of Chezzetcook's past. This was a project funded by Patrimoine Canada. Francophone artist Sylvie Boisvert guided local participants to complete this piece.

We are proud to have on display(and many for sale) artwork by the following artists and more:

  • Joe Black

  • Sylvie Boisvert

  • Nadine Hines
