Guysborough Historical Society
The Guysborough Historical Society, is a non-profit, volunteer organization created to preserve the history of Guysborough County. The first attempt to organize a historical society in Guysborough dates back to 1963.
Old Courthouse Museum & Visitor Information Centre
In 1976 the Society restored the Old Courthouse in Guysborough to create a community museum to host displays and exhibit objects that help illustrate the story of Guysborough County and its people. The Old Courthouse Museum is also home to a visitor information centre for tourists to the area and has a publicly available research room to support Genealogical Research through access to its collection of materials.
