Developments in Pioneer Village

View Round the World on shoestring's travel map.

Black Creek Pioneer Village is a short drive from Aurora. It gives a taste of life in nineteenth-century rural Ontario, with people in costumes producing traditional crafts and giving information about each building. The village would have been home to a tinsmith:


A weaver:


A printer:


And a doctor. The surgery featured an array of scary looking implements.


Our visit yesterday was interesting and informative. The effect was only spoilt by the high-rise buildings in the background and the noise of a nearby road. Apparently there were fields around the village until development crept right up to the edge of the site.
