Loved visiting with the ladies working at the heritage centre. Got to know a bit about Egmont. Bought some authentic beachcombed ocean stuff for decor.

The Heritage Centre is a small museum on the pioneer history of the Egmont and Skookumchuck region. There is a hands-on area at the back where you can try out some of the equipment - the kids would love it.

If you are travelling to Egmont, perhaps to walk out to see the Skookumchuck Narrows give yourselves a little extra time to look at the displays here. If you take the time to read and absorb it will show you a little of the hardiness...More
