We are dedicated to the preservation of history.

Explore our heritage sites to experience life in days gone by and the pride our residents have in our story of life on the border between two nations. You’ll discover heroic tales of residents helping fugitive slaves find freedom and soldiers standing guard in the face of a threatened American invasion. You’ll also hear of the wilder adventures of rum-running smugglers during Prohibiton and stories that celebrate our rich legacy as the original automotive capital of Canada. Of no less importance are the quieter narratives of the farmers, pioneers, and ordinary citizens who lived, worked, and played in this region they called home.
