Daily Summer Tour

Patrons enjoy a tour of Moreston Heritage Village

From June 25 until Labour Day, enjoy wandering through the Village at your own pace any time from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., talking with our knowledgeable costumed volunteers about life in bygone days. Take part in hands-on activities in each building. Enjoy pioneer demonstrations, crafts, scavenger hunts and games. Or, join our daily 1 p.m. guided tour through the Village with an Historic Site Interpreter.

First stop is the 1850s Log Cabin and Blacksmith Shop built by our hardy pioneers. Leave this era behind to visit a typical home of second generation settler at the Log House circa 1880. Continue walking forty years ahead to explore the 1920s Farmhouse, Barn, Derby Schoolhouse, Good Cheer Bandstand, George Rice Blacksmith Shop, and Blue Water Garage.

Moreston Heritage Village is comprised of original and replica buildings representing homes and buildings from the County of Grey.

This tour gives an opportunity to ask questions about the Village and its future plans, and about the main facility as well. 

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 Sawmill, the Bandstand, the Engine Works and the main area of the Garage and Schoolhouse are all accessible.
