Preserving the history of Nicolas Denys, St. Peters and surrounding areas
The museum contains artifacts identified with the Mi'Kmaw and the early French and British. It houses a small reference library of the history of this area and all of Cape Breton Island. A developer of the fisheries along the Nova Scotia coast, Denys established a trading post and a fort. Here he exploited the timber resources, exporting the cuttings to France. He was probably the first lumber exporter long before Canada became a nation.
