It's set within a nice park so if you're visiting the park it's a definite addition to an afternoon in Cornwall. It's small but there is a lot you can learn about the area and its history.More

Great little museum run by the historial society - Man who did the tour had great knowledge and obviously loved his job. Lots of artefacts from history of the town. Well worth a visit - by donation.

The roots of Ontario and Canada go back to these Loyalist settlements in what is now Southern Ontario; we're glad that enjoyed learning about that.
