DesBrisay Museum

DesBrisay Museum

Location: Town of Bridgewater

While visiting the south shore, you will want to include a visit to DesBrisay Museum. Learn about Bridgewater’s growth as a lumber town, and the terrible fire of 1899 that nearly destroyed it.  Explore the First Nations Gallery with its famous porcupine quill cradle, and learn more about Mi’kmaq culture.  Appreciate folk art from Lunenburg County artisans; and discover some of the oddities collected by Judge Mather Byles DesBrisay in the late 1800’s.  The research centre is a valuable resource for genealogists and historians, and the gift shop carries a good selection of books on the local area. Kids are encouraged to be ‘history detectives’ as they tour the museum and enjoy kid friendly activities throughout the museum. Situated in Woodland Gardens Park, with walking trails, a duck pond and picnic area, there is plenty of free parking, and the museum is certified Senior Friendly.  We are looking forward to your visit!

Church Lake Access Site

Church Lake Access Site

Location: Maple Syrup & Christmas Trees

The site is located at 311 Newburne Road, Newburne.  25 minutes from Blockhouse north on the Cornwall rd.  The Church Lake Public Access site includes a parking lot for 3- 6 vehicles, a dock and boat put-in for canoes, kayaks and small fishing boats. The lake is too shallow for big boats.  The dock is wheelchair accessible.  Research has shown that spending time outdoors helps to decrease stress, increase creativity, lower blood pressure and overall helps us to relax. The Municipality offers a number of outdoor opportunities for residents and visitors alike and are excited to be providing another outdoor opportunity at Church Lake.
  “Nature is our ultimate utopia: It refreshes us, inspires us, even heals us.” 
  For more information on the Church Lake Public Access site, please call the District of Lunenburg Recreation Department at 902-541-1343 or visit our website at www.modl.ca.
