The community museum for the Town of St. Marys is located in a lovely old home sitting on a hilltop overlooking the town. The house was constructed from locally quarried limestone in 1854 for George Tracy, one of the area's earliest settlers. When the house was built for the Tracy family, it was by far the largest home in the small village of log shanties. Almost immediately, it was nicknamed the Castle in the Bush.
Today, the Museum offers visitors both permanent and changing exhibits, two outbuildings containing a woodworking shop and displays of farm implements and a new archival wing that houses an excellent collection of historic photographs, local newspapers, maps and genealogical files. Visit the St. Marys Museum and discover the history of this beautiful part of Ontario!
