Grand Falls-Windsor Heritage Society

Founded in 1905 by the great newspaper baron, Lord Northcliffe, Grand Falls-Windsor has a unique history in this province as a modern manufacturing hub.

The Grand Falls-Windsor Heritage Society is dedicated to telling the fascinating story of how a gleam in the eye of the owner of the Daily Mail became the vibrant town you see today.

The Society has an extensive collection of historical photographs, documents, artifacts, and other memorabilia on all aspects of life in the town for more than a century. Drop by the Heritage Centre to view our displays and learn more about the remarkable history of this place.

Geneologists, please note that our Family Tree Grouip can assist you in all aspects of local family history research.

We also have a small gift selection of heritage cards, DVD's, CD's, photos, puzzles, and books.

Royal Canadian Legion Military Museum

A visit to the Royal Candian Legion, Branch 12, Military Museum is a must for any visitor to Grand falls-Windsor.

Because of the authenticity and breath of the collection of military artifacts that are housed at the site, Branch 12 has been officially recognized as a Military Museum.

The extensive collection , particularly, of original World War I weapons, equipment and related paraphernalia rivals that in the Provincial Archives. There are maps, photographs, personal diairies and other valuable wartime memorabilia from the wars and conflicts of the last century.

The museum's large collection of historical photographs of the young soldiers of our town and area, who volunteered in both World Wars,  are poignant reminders of their sacrifice for our freedom.
