The history of Hastings County and the surrounding area comes alive at the Farmtown Park; from the early days of cheese making, through the evolution of farm machinery to the unique Heritage Village, which depicts a typical village of the nineteen thirties and forties

George V Schoolhouse

The George V Schoolhouse is set up as a one room schoolhouse dating from the 1930s. Smaller schools were common in the rural area until the mid sixies. At Grand Parents Day in September, children can experience what it was like to go to a one room schoolhouse.

More and more schools are taking advantage of the wonderful learning environment found at Hastings County Museum of Agricultural Heritage. With your help we can design a program to meet the educational needs of your students. Grade Four students are invited to Agribition in early October to learn about our agricultural heritage and where our food comes from. They can milk the cow, make butter and try other hands-on exercises.
