ELMER WILCOX MEMORIAL LECTURE HALL
Our large lecture hall is named after a founding board member and early president of the board, Elmer Wilcox. The Wilcox family is one of the island's oldest founding families. They settled in Deep Cove where they had a shipbuilding business in the early 1800s. This hall is where the Museum's Evening Programmes & many of its Special Events are held.
