We enjoyed visiting "old" Markham when we were touring the area to visit the old stomping ground of our Canadian ancestors. So nice that the old homes, train stations, general store, etc. have been preserved. I especially liked the signs that explained the history of the structures. Thanks Markham - job well done!

We took our adult children and grandchildren here for a family outing. Tons of interesting displays and some very interesting Markham history. We also visited the Historic village and it was wonderful for the grandchildren to see how things were a hundred years ago and more. Very worthwhile.

Our friends' wedding was outside and the weather held off for a perfect afternoon. The atmosphere was light, friendly and beautiful. There were several people along the way from the parking lot guiding us where to go. After the wedding, snacks and beverages were set up outside of the reception hall. It started to rain lightly unfortunately but the staff... More

Lots of historic buildings are preserved here. Even the train engines and platforms. Very peaceful - can easily spend 1-2 hours learning about history of the place! Entry is pretty reasonable - $6. Other exhibits inside the building are very nice as well...

Very well presented, for a small town Museum is very well done. Our community has its annual summer picnic on the grounds every year. Wash room facilities are top notch. I've been told that Actors Haden Christiensen and Rachel Bilson who live in Uxbridge...the next town over has vistied but I can't confirm this.

I think that this is a special place that needs to be preserved especially given all of the development that continues to take place around it. They have many special events and the summer camp is a popular place for your children. The village is well taken care of and great staff are very helpful and full of information. Great... More
