The Ste. Agathe Historical Society maintains a collection of photographs and artifacts from the late 1800s to the mid 20th century. These materials deal mostly with everyday facets of life for the working class people of the St. John Valley.
The artifacts owned by the Society include religious and education objects, as well as farming implements and machines.
The Society also operates the Pelletier-Marquis House, which dates to 1854. The house is furnished to be historically accurate to the late 1800's. It is said to be representative of a working class home, and aims to project an image of what an unremarkable family home would have been like.
