Fanshawe Pioneer Village is an early example of the museum type known as a “Pioneer Village,” initially developed in mid-20th century Ontario by Conservation Authorities.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village tells the story of rural communities in the former townships of Westminster, London, North Dorchester, Delaware, West Nissouri and Lobo in Middlesex County from 1820 to 1920 and the founding and development of the City of London up to 1840.
Weekly Theme for July 7th:
July 3rd – 15th: Make It, Build It, Create It!
Early settlers needed to be very handy! Homes, clothing, furniture, and even toys were often made by people in your family or people in your community, at least until a general store was established. Make a toy, build a fence, create a calling card, learn how to make a shake and shingle a roof, discover how sewing machines work, and much more!
