Murray L. Moore Hydro Museum

Pembroke takes pride in being the first town in Canada in which electric power was used for electric street lighting.

On Wednesday, October 8, 1884, the first electric street lights were turned on in Pembroke. The history of the development of hydro distribution is captured in the museum that is housed in the 1931 diesel generation hall built by Pembroke Electric Light. The 1250 kilowatt generator is the centerpiece, surrounded by historical displays of line equipment, early electric appliances and meters.
