Musée Saint-Georges Museum sits on the edge of the Winnipeg River on land donated by one of the first Quebec homesteaders on the river. The museum has been an institution in the community for generations. It is the repository of family memories and community stories. The St-Georges Historical Society Inc. Board of Directors was in the process of redeveloping its exhibits when disaster struck in May 2014. The central block of the museum burned to the ground. A wealth of artifacts were lost in the fire but many were saved.
Today the Winnipeg River Heritage Museum board is rebuilding the museum based on the refocused theme that tells a more complete story of the region. This theme is:
Nous, les gens de la rivière!
We are the people of the river.
