Take a two minute walk south on Main Street, and you'll find yourself stepping back in time.

The Jordan Historical Museum, overlooking the tops of the trees in the valley below, offers a peaceful, verdant alternative. The site features two historic buildings, an 1816 log house and an 1859 stone school house, both fully restored. "The School House is available for rentals for weddings, meetings, and all kinds of get-togethers. Contact the museum for more information."

At the head of the laneway is the Heritage House, where you'll go for the start of your tour in the summer. The Heritage House features both regular and special exhibits, including a room dedicated to the rare fraktur folk art collection. Also in this building are the museum's reference library, archives, and staff offices.

Bring a picnic, hike down the stairs along the Waterfront Trail extension, wander the museum grounds, or come on in for a tour... we're waiting to welcome you!

We offer:

  • Costumed staff demonstrating pioneer activities
  • Tours of the two historic buildings
  • Regular exhibits in the Heritage House
  • Research library
  • Picnic facilities on the museum grounds

Summer hours cease the last week of August. Hope to see you soon!

There are 36 school desks that the guests sit in additional chairs are provided to make up to 59 seats. To reserve the school house for your function, please call 905-562-5242 or e-mail us at
