The Historic Lipsett/Harrison Hardware store, now a museum is conveniently located 22 Miles south of Sault Ste. Marie on Main Street in Pickford. Hundreds of artifacts representing life in the surrounding area since its inception in 1877 are arranged in categories that include education/schools, farming/dairy, military and the kitchen as the heart of the home. An ancestral portrait wall graces an extensive genealogy section. Other displays reflect early area merchants, private collections/hobbies, vintage wedding dresses and much more. We rotate exhibits in and out of archives on a 3 to 4 year schedule. An on-going demonstration of hand quilting, a five component interactive children’s hands on exhibit and a gift shop round out the offerings.
