If you are wanting to trace your family heritage, this is a good place to do it. Extensive archives. The displays feature Debert army camp, and history of Truro area. We were hoping for more artifacts, but the enlarged old photographs were good.

This beautiful building will be of interest to 1)those seeking information on their own Colchester County roots and 2)those interested in history in general. The exhibits are nicely set up, and the staff/volunteers are more than willing to help you with your research.

This is a wonderful spot. The exhibits are excellent and cover so many interesting aspects of the history. Also, the second floor is an excellent place for family genealogy if you have family in Colechester county.

Hi Ken, I apologize for the delay. The Historeum has a wheelchair ramp and an elevator so all three floors are accessible.
