In 1967 the Box family donated the ruins and 8 acres of surrounding lakefront property to the Township of McNab. The McNab Centennial Committee under leadership of Mrs. Verna Campbell built a replica of Archibald's house, using some of the original stone. The hearthstone from one of the two old fireplaces became the threshold. Archibald Corry McNab who had then assumed the Chiefship of the Clan laid the cornerstone of the new building in 1967. The rebuilt Waba Cottage opened to the public as a museum on June 26, 1968.
