Due to the popularity of its exhibits the Bedeque Area Historical Musuem will extend its season and be open in September on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.

The museum is located in the William Callbeck Centre and tells the story of Callbeck’s Store and the Loyalist settlement of the Bedeque Bay area in 1784.

It also displays the Red Barn collection of the late Howard Clark of Chelton, relating to the social history of the area. Most of the special exhibit marking the centenary of the Borden ferry service, which began in 1917, will also continue through the month.
