Osprey Museum

Rob Roy #634632 Corner Grey Rd 31 and Road 63

Osprey Museum is located in the former one-room school house at Rob Roy.  The School house is the most architecturally-detailed school house in Ontario with the brick pattern often seen in century homes of the region.  The museum strives to preserve the heritage and artifacts of the former Osprey Township and neighbouring townships.  A separate building early farm machinery and hand-forged tools used for farming and lumbering plus a few other unique items.

Reference materials include family files indexed by name, cemetery records for all of Osprey Twp. Artemesia Twp. and certain cemeteries of Glenelg and Collingwood Twps.  The Osprey Township History book is available for viewing or purchase at this site as well.

Program: Hand quilting, Heritage Arts, Painting Lessons, Mobile Library Day and other programs.

The Museum is staffed by volunteers on a seasonal basis opening the last weekend of May and closing Thanksgiving Monday.  Visits by appointment are also welcomed.  The Museum is always closed on the Saturday of the Feversham Fall Fair where an exhibit is displayed each year.

Osprey Museum is a private non-profit corporation under the direction of a Board of Directors.
