Willow Bunch Museum & Heritage Society

Scan0001The 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.
