Upper Canada Village


Cardinal is a town known for its rich history, part of which can be experienced at the Upper Canada Village, one of the largest living-history sites in Canada! Touring Upper Canada Village is a magical experience, transporting you back to the 1860s.

A key part of the experience is the authentic buildings that make up the village, the activities they each housed, and of course, the people who lived there. Featured are over forty historic buildings, including homes, functioning mills and trades workshops. Explore the diverse and fascinating historical trades at the Blacksmith, Cabinetmaker, Cooperage, Printing Office, and Tinsmith shops. Learn about footwear and shoes or broom-making at the homes of the Shoemaker and Broommaker. Each tradesperson used unique skills and specialized tools to contribute to daily life in the 1860s. Watch them work and ask about their latest project!

Upper Canada Village has many other attractions as well! Get a broader view of the village with a wagon ride, the miniature train ride, or take a horse-drawn tow-scow down the village canal. The village also offers a variety of unique dining experiences – from historical cuisine served in a relaxed heritage setting to fast food deli-fare – and overnight accommodations such as the Montgomery House, a cozy historic log building. Be sure to check out the event page to catch any special events going on during your stay!
