The Pioneer Museum is located opposite the Post Office in the heart of the hamlet of Cloyne, Ontario beside the Barrie Township Hall. Our collections, both in artifacts and documents, reflect the history of this area beginning from settlement times in the 1850s, with emphasis on such themes as settlement and pioneer life, mining, logging, tourism and the building of the Addington Road. With its unique development across county lines, its economic challenges after the departure of the timbering businesses and its determination to remain viable, this community has much fascinating history to impart. In recent years, the addition of an Archives has meant that family histories, photos, land deeds and other paper documents are available for researchers.
