The Old House Museum was originally built in the early 1800s and is notably the oldest home on Wolfe Island.  It was also once Wolfe Island's only school.  The home has changed ownership a number of times, including once the home of Antoine 'Tiner' LaRush.  The home changed hands one final time in 2009 when the Wolfe Island Historical Society obtained it from the Township, and held it's grand opening on July 28, 2009. 

The Museum holds many stories and artifacts from around the area in hopes of drawing people in both young and old to learn about the history of Wolfe Island and area.
