About Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

blackcreekvillageThe Metropolitan Toronto and Region Conservation Authority joined together the site of the Dalziel Pioneer Park Museum, which housed a magnificent 1809 Pennsylvania German log barn & a historic farm of Daniel and Elizabeth Stong farm of  1816 to create the Black Creek Pioneer Village, which was opened to the public in 1960. Over the following years,  MTRCA added historical buildings from southern Ontario until the Village reached its present size. In 2009, Black Creek Pioneer Village opened a working replica of an 1860s brewery, the only one of its kind in North America.

Spanning more than 30 acres of pristine country landscapes, the Village includes 40 heritage buildings from communities across south central Ontario fully furnished from a collection of over 50,000 historical artifacts.
