The Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives is a multi-municipal institution established by local volunteers as a non-profit, charitable organization, serving the citizens of the Town of Arnprior and McNab-Braeside Township. The Archives was established to acquire, preserve and make accessible important historical documents pertaining to the history of the area.


The Township of McNab/Braeside will reimburse each household $55.00 to use the library services offered by Arnprior and Renfrew Public Libraries.

Waba Cottage Museum

The museum is full of memories from the past. Local families have been so generous in donating artifacts. We are very proud of our community volunteer force that helped, and continue to help maintain our Museum and Gardens showing ever-continuing support of our heritage. The buildings contain everything from Sunday's best china to farm harvesting equipment. Located at 24 Museum Road, White Lake, Ontario K0A 3L0.

The Ottawa Valley

The Ottawa Valley stretches from Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, westward to the wilderness of Ontario’s world-renowned Algonquin Park in the west. More than half the Valley is wilderness: 2.4 million hectares (6 million acres) of pristine waterways, rolling woodlands and dramatic landforms. This landscape stimulates an out-of-doors lifestyle with recreation opportunities that are varied and adaptable to season, scenery and technical challenge.
