“Lots of Interesting Artifacts”

Cornwall Brothers Store & Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed September 28, 2016

Cornwall Brothers is a small museum, but it is full of interesting items. My husband and I were escorted around by the gentleman who owns/runs it. There is a lot of Alexandria Bay's history here with everything from collectible decoys to an 1866 bank vault. Outside of the store, there is a beautiful view of Boldt Castle. It seems to be very active with different types of lectures and activities that are ongoing.

There is no charge, but there is a donation box if you should decide to give. It's worth it!

If you're a history buff, you will LOVE this little museum. Has the history of the Thousand Islands, boat races, and even shows a video of the old drag races they used to have around town. Volunteers are extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. This is a free attraction and if you have children it doesn't hurt to incorporate a little history in their vacation.

The oldest building in town on the river. Originally a general store, it is filled with artifacts, videos of town events from the 1930s, and priceless photographs.

This little gem is tucked back away from the main street through Alexandria Bay, but be sure and check it out. Great view of Heart Island and there's access to a nice river walk just outside the door. Inside, a bit of history upstairs and down and very friendly and knowledgeable folks eager to answer any questions.
