Black Creek Pioneer Village

Black Creek Pioneer Village
Mill Road, looking toward the carriage works (1867, Sebringville).

Black Creek Pioneer Village was established in the 1960's to demonstrate life in central Ontario in the 1860's. The buildings of the old Stong Farm along Black Creek already existed on the site. Other buildings were moved here from other nearby communities.

For the first time in 2009, the village was open to the public during March break. Not all of the buildings were open because the weather was still too cool. But enough buildings were open to make the visit worthwhile. The result is an album of photos providing a view of the village few regular visitors have seen before.
