The Maple Ridge Museum was opened in August of 1984 in the Haney Brick & Tile Company Manager's home which had been constructed in 1907. This historic setting overlooks the Fraser River and the CPR main line near the original waterfront heart of Port Haney.
Displays reflect the local history and geography of Maple Ridge, beginning with the stone tools and cedar baskets of the Katzie and Whonnock Indians. Pioneer artifacts show some of the occupations of our early settlers such as logging, farming, fishing, and brick making. Household articles, period clothing, and handicrafts are another feature of the museum, along with Finnish and Japanese items from the varied ethnic groups that settled in Maple Ridge.
Also houses the Maple Ridge Community Archives which include several thousand photographs and primary documents relating to local people, organizations, and businesses, which are available to the public for study. Canadian Pacific Rail Diorama: The Dewdney-Alouette Railway Society is constructing a display on the lower floor of the Museum showing the CPR lines along the Fraser River from Ruskin to Hammond in the 1920 era.
