A unique and interesting collection of objects awaits you at the Eaton Corner Museum. They have been donated over the years by many local families so we will remember the life of yesteryear. The objects date from the beginnings of the settlement era at the end of the late 1700s, the mid- to late 1800s when Eaton Corner was in its heyday, and the turn of the 19th century to recent times. To see some highlights of the collection, scroll down this page.
