Our mission is to preserve the past of Canada South for the education and interpretation of present and future generations. Sitting on 100 Acres, our 25000 square foot Transportation Museum showcases modes of transportation from early wooden wheel wagons all the way to the present day Viper! Our Heritage Village is a journey back in time to 15 buildings that have been placed here from all over Essex County. Our tour guides would be happy to take you back in time to learn the treasured history of our area. Our Village is open Tuesday Through Sunday May 01 - October 31st, and our Museum is open year round for tours.

I said "Surprisingly" above, because the outward appearance doesn't give you that kind of a feeling. However, don't be put off! The lunch at the 50s cafe was outstanding. They offered a nice variety and the food was well prepared. The gentleman who took us...More

If you like cars and trucks, if you like a walk in the woods, or if you like historical buildings....this interesting collection brings it all to one place. Also worth noting that the diner makes simply the best old-school chololate milkshakes too!
