Tecumseh Heritage Centre

picture of heritage centre


The town of Tecumseh has a rich history made by the various French and Indigenous communities that settled there.

In 1977, thirteen residents of the area formed a venue to display that history to the public. The Tecumseh Area Historical Society (TAHS) holds several artefacts which hold local importance. Among other items, these artefacts include medical supplies from the town’s first mayor, bottles from the town’s past breweries, Essex Scottish army uniforms, and many antique photographs.

The Society is located on the same property as the historical Lesperance Family Log Cabin, sitting only a few meters from the original Tecumseh train station. It’s 220 years old.

The property also boasts a beautiful indigenous garden space complete with a reproduced teepee tent. Visit by yourself or schedule a trip for your class or organization.
