The County Court House on the site was built in 1904 to replace the original that had been lost in a fire earlier. The complex encompasses what was known as the Shiretown (capital) of Albert County. The Albert County Museum is owned and operated by the Albert County Historical Society Incorporated, a Registered Canadian Charity.The museum houses the Prime Minister R.B. Bennett Commemorative Centre which opened in 2010 to commemorate the life of the Canadian Prime Minister, R. B. Bennett, who grew up in the community.
