Our History & Mission

The Bergland/Matchwood Historical Society has been in existence for 30 years. We met faithfully every month and enjoyed pot luck at the Senior Center. On August 1st 2009, we finally obtained a building for our Museum. We partnered with the Bergland Heritage and Cultural center and the Ottawa National Forest.

The Historical Society and the Heritage and Cultural Society have been merged under the heading as the Historical Society, and are located at the closed Bergland Ranger Station. The Historical Society Museum is located in the old Ranger house and small garage. The Forest office is now the Forest Service Museum with a large display of earlier days gone by,including a life size stuffed Smokey the Bear.

Our mission is to preserve, document, and display every artifact of these two Townships. The items we have on display at the Museum are either donated or on loan to us. When family or old photos are brought in, people have the option of either donating or loaning the pictures. Or make a copy of the original photo they bring in. We make excellent copies.
