The Judique Historical and Cultural Society and Storytellers Gallery host ceilidhs and special storytelling events during the summer months.

In 1996 the building was taken over by the Judique Historical Society. The expression "Judique on the Floor" is well known in Inverness County. Judique was long thought to have the best stepdancers in the area. If a native of Judique stepped onto the dance floor people would shout, " Judique on the floor, who'll dare put him off?" Extensive renovations were carried out but the society kept in mind the character of the building and its historical significance. In 2006 and 2007 the building was moved onto a new foundation. It was moved south/southwest approximately twenty metres.

The Judique Historical and Cultural Society building is a one-and-a-half storey Maritime Vernacular style structure. Simple in its style, it has a medium pitch gable roof and has no dormers. It has changed somewhat from its original Company House appearance. The kitchen ell has been removed and the original asymmetrical façade has been replaced with a shop front façade with a central door and windows on either side.
