The Cascapedia River Museum was established to preserve local artifacts and the stories that are the foundation of the salmon fishing culture of the community. Residents of the Cascapedia valley have always been proud of their heritage and want to pass on this pride to future generations, fishermen, and visitors. It took the vision, initiative, and commitment of many local residents and visiting anglers to solicit and harness the support of the community, fishermen, and government agencies to get the museum where it is today.
The museum is fortunate to share the same building as the Cascapedia Society, which manages the Cascapedia River. The museum is fortunate to share the same building as the Cascapedia Society, which manages the Cascapedia River. Two local historical buildings (Campbell Brothers, later J.A. Campbell and sons, and the Clapperton Store), both of which previously shared a rich part in the fishing heritage of the community, were reclaimed to house our facilities. Everything that the fisherman, camps, and locals needed, from licensees to clothing, could formerly be purchased at these sites and most people involved in the history of both the community and the river have passed many times through their doors. Today the buildings have been restored and we are proud to welcome you and share a bit of our history.
