Hours of Operation: July and August, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. every day. Established in 1977, the Heritage Park Museum offers a glimpse of what life would have been like for those living in the area over 100 years ago: authentic displays and buildings include a general store, a chapel, the blacksmith shop, stables and period farming equipment.
The Park plays host to the annual Country Fair and Silent Auction held on the Monday of the Civic Holiday weekend in August, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Highlights include live, local music, amazing cooking and baking, a tractor show, children’s activities, vendors, historical displays, and demonstrations of blacksmith skills. During the off-season the Park is available for group tours, weddings, or other events, by appointment only. The Heritage Park Museum is wholly owned and operated by the Thessalon Township Heritage Association.
