Moreston Heritage Village

Moreston is the scene for summer tours from our Grand Opening on June 28 through Labour Day, pioneer children's and school programming, as well as a variety of events throughout the year such as the Maple Syrup Festival in the spring, Spoke & Bustle in summer, Pratie Oaten in fall, and winter candlelight Christmas celebrations. View the Moreston Photo Gallery.

Please note that due to the historic nature of the buildings, some are not fully accessible. The site itself, the Blacksmith Shop, the Barn, the Bandstand, the Engine Works and the main area of the Garage and Schoolhouse are all accessible.
