History comes alive

A beautiful setting for a pioneer village, lots to see and do with interpretors, re-enactments and much more. Very quiet and peaceful in the park but loads of events going on.

Even though I had season's passes and also visited with tickets or Doors Open events when I had no seasons passes I always see something new in the houses I visited many times. Or I just sit...

Wonderful place to volunteer, especially in the lazy, hazy days of summer. A real back-to-nature experience. A great place to visit with children to give them an idea of how their ancestors lived. Always lots of extra events throughout the season and into the fall.

Such a great 'back in time' place. Children of all ages can be interactive, and learn from those who recreate 'back in time' They will see how things were done in the 'olden days' ( as my grandson says.)

Well worth a visit. Situated in one of the provincial parks the site holds many of the buildings of the period with The surrounding park would be worth spending time in if you have time.

We spent at least 3 hours slowly walking around the village. Great buildings to see and great costumed characters talk to and give us information. The blacksmiths was working when we were there and they also have a working sawmill. Well worth a visit for anyone and especially a family. Very informative.

The buildings And displays were in excellent condition. The hounds and gardens were well maintained. A couple of buildings were locked and no signs indicated why. The staff were very courteous and knowledgeable.
