We began our visit to Sault Ste. Marie by visiting this site. There is free parking, but an admission fee to the attractions. The room with information about the War of 1812 in the Sault area was very informative and interactive - great for kids. The movie was really good and gave a good background on the businessmen who built... More

Facinating look at the early Canadian European settlement in Sault Ste.Marie. All beautifully presented with good discriptions and costumed guides demonstrating life in those times. (Not sure the guides are there off season) Good gift shop though the claim that merchandise was Canadian made was only true for some of the items. The gardens are interesting but it was raining...

We stopped in on a whim because we passed this place and thought it looked interesting, and we were so glad we did. We had a great time and the staff are absolutely wonderful, especially our tour guide, Brandon, he took us through both buildings and made the place come alive. We learned so much about the area, both past... More

Great for history buffs. Gives nice incite into early living in the area. Best to visit after June when staff is full and gardens are open.

We spent an entire morning at this Historical Site. Lots of history we Canadians should know about! We toured and read all signage first and then sat in on the movie they had in 1 of their rooms. Amazing! This is so worth the time to go see. A lot of history. It almost felt like I was brought back... More

Worth a visit to see. Surprised to learn that the fire place is still in used today as well as the oven. Breads and cakes are still baked there.

The two houses have both been beautifully restored, giving a really fantastic insight into the history of Sault Ste. Marie. The staff is dressed in period clothing and really know a lot about the exhibits, which makes for a very nice exhibit.

Went during the Christmas moonlight madness night. They had warm drinks and cookies made in the old ovens. The tour was interesting and they have done a great job with the upgrades to the facility. It also has a nice gift shop with great Hudson Bay items such as glove and hats

At certain times in life, when the opportunity presents itself, the wisest choice maybe to seize the moment, and enjoy the experience. This national historic site is steeped in history with links to the United States, Europe and beyond. With ties to pivotal military battles, the wax and wane of financial empires and life on the raw edge of civilization... More
