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.

You can also rent their venue for special events like birthday parties. The staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful.
  • Great location with lots of fun activities for families. The main exhibit is changed out regularly, but the parkland holds many beautiful old buildings that share a part of the story of Markham. There is also a full professional staff to assist in research or genealogical inquiries.
  • Awesome exhibits with lots of fun camps great for kids,with kind and helpful counsellors to supervise the kids.A good place to drop off your kids so you can go take a nap back home! :P
  • A best place in Markham to bring your kids and enjoy summer learning history.
