Many reconstructed buildings. Youth and adult events supported by community volunteers. Worth a visit.

Settlers Village is a small historic village set in a beautiful, small village on the Trent Severn Waterway.
Run primarily by a team of hard working volunteers, it is an escape from our current busy lives and gives us a taste of Ontario's past. Buildings have been moved to this site from the neighbouring countryside and have meaning for many local families.
It is open mainly in the summer months for tourists and also offers summer camps for local children. Throughout the off season they offer special activities such as outdoor travelling theatre, art shows, quilt shows and other special events as well as special events for families such as the very popular Hallowe'en and Festival of Trees Christmas events.

This is a perfect, rural, small town venue but if you are expecting Canada's Wonderland, this isn't it.
