La Crete Heritage Centre & Museum – Agricultural Society
The La Crete Heritage Centre is managed by the La Crete Agricultural Society. The Heritage Centre has four rooms that can be rented for community, family and business events. The Agricultural Society also operates the La Crete Mennonite Heritage Village (museum), organizes community events, and supports agricultural initiatives.
The La Crete Mennonite Heritage Village has been managed by the La Crete Agricultural Society since 1991. The museum village contains over 15 local heritage buildings, a 1910 Case steam engine, the former Tompkins Landing ferry, a flour mill, many pieces of farm equipment, furnishings, and other artifacts. Every year on the first Saturday in September we hold a Pioneer Day event with a community pancake breakfast, antique parade, and equipment demonstrations including shingle making and threshing, cultural food booths and kids’ activities.
