Willow Bunch Museum & Heritage Society, Inc.


The Willow Bunch Museum & Heritage Society  is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors.  It was established in 1972 by a group of local students through a government summer employment program.

The Willow Bunch Museum was originally in the old Union Hospital that had served the community from 1946 to 1969 when it was closed due to government cutbacks. Today the Museum is housed in the convent originally built for the Sisters of the Cross in 1914.

The Museum occupies two full floors with history and artifacts donated by local and former residents.  It is constantly evolving, improving and expanding the existing displays and adding new artifacts and displays that depict the history of the community.

  1. I attended kindergarten (1981-82) with Sister Ellen, and half of grade one (1982) with Miss Gold, in this building. I recall, my kindergarten classroom was downstairs from the front door of the school. I remember Sister Ellen explaining to me that she lived on the top floor of the building. I am originally from, and continue to live in the Province of Newfoundland. My family lived in Saskatchewan in the early 1980’s because my father worked at the power plant in Coronach.

    Thank you

    1. Hi, my name is Sheila, my father also worked in Saskatchewan in 1981-1982. My father Abbe worked with Jason’s father. My teachers were also sister Marie Ellen and Mrs Gold. This is so funny, as our parents knew each other and we hung out together back then. I remember playing with them. I cherish my memories from that small town and hope to go visit one day 🤗

  2. Our visit to the Willow Bunch Museum was the highlight of our road trip to Saskatchewan. Wendy & Lincoln, FL USA.

  3. Hi, my name is François Theriault. I’m born and raised in
    St jacques de Montcalm, Quebec . The city where M.Jean Louis Légaré was born .
    Would you like to have a flag from our city ? (if you don’t even have one yet) Maybe you could expose it in the museum . If you want to have one , it will be my pleasure to offer and send it to you.

  4. I haven’t been to the museum in many years but I recall that there were several pieces donated by my great grandfather Reginald Birchard. It was great fun to visit as a kid.
