Muskoka Heritage Place, Huntsville
(4.4/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
In 1958 the Huntsville Rotary Club was aware of the growing number of family artifacts that were showing up at community events. So they set up a temporary small pioneer museum and began to collect and sort these artifacts in an empty school building on Caroline St. Not long after, two members of the local Rotary came up with the idea of a pioneer village and other Rotarians agreed.

They found a site just off Brunel Road 33 acres very close to Huntsville's downtown and equipped with its very own beaver pond which was, and is, a pristine slice of natural Muskoka.

  • Visited on a drizzly day, but pretty pleasant nonetheless. Well laid out little huts and houses, with some demonstrations going on and people to help. Good fun and great value.
