Birthplace NHA/NHL Museum
Today the Stanley Cup is one of the most recognized professional sports trophies in the world. But when it was created in 1893, the Stanley Cup was just a challenge cup.
The Birthplace NHA/NHL Museum showcases hockey history from Renfrew County, including the fact that M.J. O’Brien and his son Ambrose started the National Hockey Association (NHA) from Renfrew in 1909. The NHA was later renamed the National Hockey League in 1917 due to the settlement of ongoing litigation. The Museum features pictures and artifacts showcasing the early days of hockey in the NHA and NHL especially as it was represented in Renfrew County.
