The Glenesk Folk Museum at the Retreat was set up in 1955 by Miss Greta Michie, a local farmer's daughter and school teacher, based on Scandinavian folk museums she had visited in Norway. The Retreat houses an extremely large collection of artefacts, some of which are now on display in the museum.

In 2004 a community purchase and subsequent major refurbishment of circa £800,000 took place.
