Welcome to Heritage Village with a
collection of over 20 heritage buildings from the early
1800's up to the 1930's. Each building is displayed with
authentic furniture, artifacts and historical items of the
day. Come and see what is possibly the first house in
Kingsville to receive electricity, and visit the 1840 Olinda
General Store and see what it had to offer its customers
more than 150 years ago.
Walk into the Woodslee Jail from 1895, and
see life as it would have been lived in this area from
inside a real log cabin. Take a stroll over to the Jack
Miner home that the legendary Jack built for he and his wife
back in 1889. Jack said, "the smaller the house, the larger
the home", what do you think?
And education? You will take a step back in
time when you walk into the 1907 Gosfield South Section No.
1 Edwardian One Room Schoolhouse complete; a time when
teachers were much stricter and rules were most certainly
Schoolhouse to be restored.
Thinking of an old fashioned hair cut or
perhaps a simple bleeding? Are your shoes in need of repair?
Check out the artifacts in the 1930 Barber & Cobbler Shop
and see how things were done back in the pioneer days. Maybe
you are in need of a really good prayer? Why not pause for a
moment or two in the Bethel United Church built just down
the Arner Townline in the lost town of Elford back in 1885.
