'Come Touch History' in this unique Northwestern Ontario Pioneer Village. Drop in at the General Store and look through the newly arrived catalogues. Visit the shops and chat with the residents while they wait for the train. Recall the memories of a one-room school and spend a quiet moment in the village church. Pay a visit to the homestead and you can even help do the laundry.

The carpenter, cobbler and even the blacksmith welcome you to their business establishments. Stop by the printer's to find out the latest news around the village at the newspaper office. Whether your interest lies in antique cars, tractors, farm equipment, engines or motors, Founders' Museum has it all.

The Pioneer Village is located on Highway 61, just a short distance from the City of Thunder Bay. Simply drive down Highway 61 towards the US border and turn right on Gillespie Road.
