The Elman W. Campbell Museum acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional territories of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe peoples and the treaty land of the Williams Treaties First Nations.

The Elman W. Campbell Museum relocated to the former North York Registry Office in 1996.   The building is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act and is the last remaining 19th-century registry office from York County.  Built in the formal Classical Revival style in 1884, the structure was designed to be fire-proof. It features two-foot-thick brick walls, a cut stone foundation and a slate roof.  It is unique in having transverse vaults rather than a vault extending the length of the building.  The museum is located on Main Street in historic downtown Newmarket.
