The QEMA Board of Directors recognizes that membership represents the sustainability of our organization and its future. The Board  thanks current members for their continued commitment, and welcome new members to our energetic community of those preserving educational history. In addition, the Board continues to extend its appreciation to local organizations and corporate sponsors.


We must first express our gratitude to the Montgomery family for their generous donation of the Victoria Schoolhouse and the various individuals for the educational artifacts that have so greatly enhanced our collection and exhibits.

The Montgomery Family

There is a story to the Victoria Schoolhouse. Mrs. Montgomery was a teacher there spending time with a local boy, Harmon Montgomery. They later married and raised children on the farm where the Schoolhouse sits. Her husband, Harmon Montgomery, followed in his father's footsteps and became involved with education. He sat on the Bay of Quinte High School Board and was involved in planning for the new Prince Edward School Board, serving on it for 17 years. Elected to the municipal council in what was then the Township of Ameliasburgh, Mr. Montgomery also served as Warden of Prince Edward County.

Mrs. Montgomery was a Charter Member of the Board of the Quinte Educational Museum and Archives in addition to the 7th Town Historical Society. Thanks to the Montgomery family, QEMA has a valuable artifact that now restored joins the ranks of a limited number of one-room schools in Ontario that are available for public and student use.
