Welcome to the Keith M. Boyd Museum. The late Keith M. Boyd founded and created this museum which is operated by the Russell Historical Society. The museum, situated on the corner of Concession St. and Church St. in Russell Village proper, contains a wealth of photographs and artifacts dating back to the early 1800s. The Museum occupies two buildings, a former church built in 1856 and the former fire hall constructed around 1971.

Visitors who come from a distance should contact the Museum before traveling to ensure that volunteer staff will be available to assist them.

Hours: Open most Sundays 1:00-4:00 P.M.
