Wordless Wednesday – Touring Settler’s Village, Bobcaygeon, Ontario, Canada

My husband and I go camping every summer at Emily Provincial Park in Omeemee, Ontario, near Peterborough. One day we decided to tour one of the local towns and see what attractions we could find. We decided to go north 20 km. to Bobcaygeon.
In the town of Bobcaygeon was a pleasant surprise, a Settler’s Village right in town. The location was quite unusual, we didn’t expect much, but it was worth taking a look.
There was no Admission fee, just a donation when you leave, if you wish to make one. A tour guide took us around and unlocked the buildings, one by one, they don’t get much traffic. Now I will give you a tour.
