Glance far back into the area’s history at the Moncur Gallery. Established through the collection of ancient artifacts by William Moncur, an avid local amateur archeologist, the gallery specializes in the history of the Aboriginal people who first came to the area 11,000 years ago. Included in the collection are more than one thousand artifacts all from the time when the first people of the region lived among the Turtle Mountains.
