BUXTON/ FRIENDSHIP MUSEUM, ARCHIVES & CULTURE CENTER (BFMACC)

On August 4th, 2018, we had a grand opening of “The Buxton / Friendship Museum Archives and Culture Center” located at Lot 35 Buxton Middle Street (Lower Level) Buxton Village, East Coast, Demerara, Guyana.

With the declared Emancipation of slavery in 1838, the Village Movement was spreading. The pioneers, both male and female, were still able to save enough money to buy Plantation Orange Nassau later renamed Buxton. Friendship Village was later purchased and the combined area became Buxton /Friendship. The purchase of Buxton / Friendship and other villages set the stage for the formation of the Cooperative movement in Guyana.         

Located in a historical village on the East Coast of Demerara, such a museum has much more meaning, since it embodies not only a Museum but an Archive with a cultural mandate. What is also significant about BFMACC is our Mission of “rekindling the ancestral fortitude which can promote resilient entrepreneurial contributions in molding the socioeconomic fabric of the villages and nation of Guyana.” Towards this mission we co-sponsored and sponsored Economic Development seminars. It is our duty to preserve historical documents, memorabilia and historical artifacts for future generations.
