This museum is part of the old Brampton firehall, which was constructed in 1854. The building has been occupied by the Lorne Scots regiment for many years. The museum itself was opened in 1980 and contains a large collection of historical and military artifacts that showcase the rich history of the regiment and the Brampton residents who have volunteered in various conflicts. During Digital Doors Open, you can experience some of this remarkable history through these videos: Lorne Scots 12 Chapel, Trooping 1975, Homecoming 1945, Camp Niagara 1944, Pipes and Drums Edinburgh 1960, March Past Trooping of the Colour 2016 (shown below) and the Lorne Scots Sesquicentennial.
