We took a walking tour with Jacob and Nina. What a great time! We learned a lot about both the history of Cabbagetown, and about contemporary Cabbagetown. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed going and Performing southern songs at this Museum a few weeks ago. It is a Hidden Gem in the Heart of the City walking distance from the historic Oakland Cemetery.

This is a fun and well thought out historic museum. The displays replicate the personality and love in Cabbagetown. I especially enjoyed the porch which defines the architecture of this town.

Thank you! The entire neighborhood of Cabbagetown is essentially an "Open-Air" museum. The structures are protected by rigid Landmark Guidelines, since the community has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976. Absolutely, the architecture alone is worth the trip!
