The Victorian style house, built in 1916, is now home to a number of exhibits that pay tribute to the region’s rich lumber, mining and railroading heritage. The building also houses the museum’s gift shop, washroom facilities and quaint tea room serving hot and cold refreshments during the summer months.
Former Capreol mayor Harold Prescott helped to secure the donation of Canadian National Railways steam locomotive #6077 in 1967 and Prescott Park is named in his honour. The park is home to lush gardens and a very unique collection of rolling stock. There are picnic tables on site for visitors wishing to bring their own lunch.
