The Hillcrest Museum in Souris, Manitoba was formed in 1967 when a group of local citizens purchased the former home of Fred and Maud Sowden to establish a museum that would preserve and exhibit the rich history of the development of the community.
Plan a visit!
Visit the Hillcrest Museum and explore what life was like in the early 1900's.
