The R.T. Elethorp Historical Society welcomes you to the
Hammond Museum in the heart of the Thousand Islands
museum, which holds many artifacts unique to Hammond and its people, preserves the memories and heritage of generations of Hammond
residents. Hammond is a rural farming area that borders on the spectacular
St. Lawrence River and Black Lake. We
have a rich history of farmers that in many cases are descended from
Scottish settlers that came here in 1818.
Hammond Museum was built in 1998 on land donated by Steve and Donna Demick.
government grants or loans were needed as volunteer labor and donations
built this exceptional museum.
are many wonderful islands in the Chippewa Bay area of Hammond, including
the Cedar Island State Park and Singer Castle on Dark Island. The
shoreline from Indian Point to Oak Point is quite beautiful.
All events are at museum barn area,
unless otherwise noted. Please bring
lawn chair or blanket. Admission free (except fiddlers fling), but
we do "pass the hat" for donations for entertainers.
