Our Mission Statement
and District grew as the apple industry grew; so to did its
people and their accomplishments.
The Apple Capital Museum will endeavor to record the area's heritage for the future.
Apple Capital Interpretive Centre:
The summer of 1999 saw the first real signs of activity at the centre, as volunteers who had worked through the winter to repair the building opened the doors to the public.
The society designed and built Berwick's Apple Blossom princess float, organized a monthly series of evening historical talks, encouraged local seniors to take on a gardening project on-site and signed up volunteers to be in the centre at busy times through the summer.
The society hosted a successful pork BBQ picnic to thank all our supporters and this will become an annual event (look for it in July).
There are plenty more projects and events in "the works" and we always welcome volunteers.
Apple Capital Museum Society:
Founded in 1998 with a generous donation of the Margeson building, Berwick, the Apple Capital Museum Society co-ordinates the support and operation of the Apple Capital Interpretive Centre.
The centre will collect and display historical paraphernalia on the Annapolis Valley apple industry and its founders, as well as information on residents and community history of interest to Berwick and District.
The Apple Capital Museum Society is a non-profit organization, made up of volunteers. A board of directors oversees operations according to society by-laws, with regular meetings of the general membership and newsletters throughout the year.
With the strong and ongoing support of the Berwick and District Lions Club, the society has been able to open the centre doors and welcome another partner, the Town of Berwick.
Berwick's Visitor Information centre and its staff have enabled the centre to open throughout the summer, increasing our profile in both the local community and among tourists. We hope these strong partnerships last into the future, with new supporters coming aboard.
