In this quaint reconstruction of a Victorian-era village, costumed interpreters cheerily answer questions about life in the 19th century. The original pioneers on this land were Daniel and Elizabeth Strong, a newlywed couple in 1816 who cleared 40 hectares (99 acres) of wilderness for farming and built a log house in their spare time. Eventually, a village developed around this site, and many of the existing buildings date from the 1860s. Every day is different here, so on any given day, you might find "villagers" spinning, sewing, rail splitting, sheep shearing, or threshing. You can count on sampling the villagers' homey cooking, wandering through the cozily furnished homesteads, visiting the working mill, shopping at the general store, and rumbling past the farm animals in a horse-drawn wagon. The beautifully landscaped village has more than 30 restored buildings to explore.
