Lang Pioneer Village Museum

Description

Where History is Happening! Experience Peterborough County's history come to life at Lang Pioneer Village Museum.

Lang Pioneer Village Museum is located just 10 minutes east of Peterborough on the shores of the Indian River. Established in 1967, the Museum features 30 restored and recreated buildings including David Fife's log cabin and a 170-year old Grist Mill. Costumed interpreters demonstrate the life and trades of a settler in the 1800s. The S. W. Lowry Weaver Shop & Jacquard Loom Interpretive Centre at Lang Pioneer Village Museum houses one of only a handful of authentic Jacquard looms on display in North America. The Weaver Shop also houses a fully-operational replica loom with a mezzanine to provide visitors with a unique view of the upper workings of a Jacquard loom. The Village also features an authentic First Nations encampment which is interpreted throughout the summer by a First Nations interpreter.

A photographers paradise, the Village is complete with lanes and pathways, farm animals, vegetable and herb gardens and other authentic details of a 19th-century hamlet.
