Century Church Theatre

Built in 1906, the theatre gets its name from its past as Hillsburgh Community Christian Church and is now a quaint and intimate venue for plays and concerts. Remnants from its Church times, including stained glass windows and elm pew, mean that the art on the stage is not the only art you can enjoy during your visit.

Although currently running and upcoming performances can be found on the website, the theatre has hosted performances of ‘The 39 Steps’ (a re-envisioning of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, performed with a cast of only 4), ‘Dick Whittington and His Cat,’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ If you want to put your star power to the test, you can audition for upcoming performances, and you might get the chance to perform for the town!

Hillsburgh House by the Pond

You will need a place to stay while visiting Hillsburgh, and where better to stay than Hillsburgh House by the Pond? The rustic 1894-built farmhouse overlooks the Millpond and is close to all the Hillsburgh attractions.

Maple Syrup Museum of Ontario

Recommended by Derek Elliott

The Maple Syrup Museum of Ontario recently moved to Elliott Tree Farm in Hillsburgh.

This one-of-a-kind collection of indigenous, pioneer and early modern artifacts have been collected and assembled over many years to preserve the rich history of maple syrup production within the province of Ontario.

When visiting the museum, you will learn why maple syrup production holds a cultural and historical significance of tradition and food value for the Indigenous people of Ontario and how maple syrup connected their communities to the land, reflecting a harmonious relationship with nature.

Erin Hill Acres

If you are out shopping for Christmas trees and nothing at the previous farm caught your eye, there is no need to fret because Erin Hill Acres is close by! Another farm in Hillsburgh, Erin Hill, originates with John Robertson Kennedy, an ancestor of the current farm owners. He first started a family farm around 1870 in what is now Mississauga, Ontario.

Now down to the seventh-generation kin of Kennedy, the farm offers not only fresh products but fresh air experiences for every season. Their product offerings focus primarily on Lavender and include soaps, oils, jams, and teas. In their winter experiences, they have their Christmas trees (including Blue Spruce, Balsam Fir, and Meyer Spruce), wagon rides, and Christmas activities. For summer experiences, they open their farm walking trails on the farm and focus their activities and products on lavender, such as a soap-making activity.

Walking trails are also open in the fall, alongside their sunflower and pumpkin farms. No matter the season, Erin Hill Acres is a must on your itinerary.

Hillsburgh Historical Park

Another park in Hillsburgh is Hillsburgh Historical Park. This site used to host a General Store and, upon its closing, remained vacant for many years until the community got together to create a park. The park includes a beautiful Barn Beam Structure, an outdoor stage for concerts and community gatherings, charming greenery, and benches to sit on to take it all in.

The park is great to stop by to attend some great community events, including outdoor church services and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
