Working in the present while preserving the past for now and the future

About Us

The Lac du Bonnet and District Historical Society is a non-profit organization.


With our team of dedicated volunteers, we work to preserve the history of the town and rural municipality of Lac du Bonnet and our surrounding areas.


We restored the Hans Erickson cabin for use as our museum, where displays and exhibits showcase our history. Our vast archives of historical artifacts, documents, maps and photographs are collected through generous donations and meticulous research.


Our most recent acquision of Lac du Bonnet’s oldest intact building, the St. John’s Church, provides a new challenge as we work to create a thriving community space while maintaining the charm of 115-year-old church.




The Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society acknowledge that we are on Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
