The Pelee Island Heritage Centre aspires to research, collect and preserve the evidence of the Island’s (and neighbours’) human history, to protect the community’s natural heritage, and to educate the public about our combined heritage through exhibits, publications, special presentations and our extended stay education program. It is understood, moreover, that the Heritage Centre, through the benefit of hindsight, should play a role in informing current community planning issues.
