Come visit a historic crossroads community of the mid-1800's.

Did you know that Ontario’s Heritage Square Museum is the only place in Wayne County where you can go back in time to experience a typical 19th century settlement? The thirteen-acre site contains eight historic buildings filled with household and industrial items used by Ontario’s early settlers and a two-story barn which houses displays and artifacts.

Every year the museum hosts almost 1000 students from area schools. Nothing brings history more alive for children than being able to explore these buildings and see first hand how different their lives would have been back then.
