Markham Museum, Markham

4.0
Markham Museum is a 25acre open-air museum, located in Markham, Ontario, Canada. It is dedicated to the preservation of old buildings and artefacts from Markham's past, especially as a rural village has become an urban centre. The site features nearly 30 buildings: houses, barns, sheds, a train station, a school, a general store, a church, a blacksmith, a harness shop, a saw mill, a cider mill, and many more. One of the oldest buildings is the Hoover House, built in 1824 by a Mennonite family who were originally from Pennsylvania.The site has been open since 1971, using the former Mount Joy School as its main offices and archives. The museum is located at 9350 Highway 48
