The Hillcrest Museum in Souris, Manitoba was formed in 1967 when a group of local citizens purchased the former home of Fred Sowden to establish a museum that would preserve and exhibit the rich history of the development of the community. They then formed the Souris Hillcrest Community Corporation Inc. as a registered charity to operate the museum. If you are interested in volunteering your time to help out, use the contact email to let us know about your interest.
