Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dufferin Historical Society Museum (44 Kings Park Road, Carman)

The original museum was a small wooden structure, built in 1959 by the Dufferin Historical Society. It was replaced by the present structure in 1967, as a centennial project of the Rural Municipality of Dufferin and Town of Carman. It is operated by volunteers.

On the grounds of the museum is the former Sexsmith House, a municipally-designated historic site, built in the 1870s by local farmer and municipal official George Sexsmith. On 7 March 2013, the building of the former Boyne School was moved to the site.
