Lang Pioneer Village Museum
Established in 1967 by the County of Peterborough to commemorate the centennial of Canada’s Confederation, Lang Pioneer Village Museum seeks to preserve the history of the area. The 40-acre site, between two historic mills (the Lang Grist Mill and Hope Saw Mill), was the ideal location for the layout of a 19th-century village exemplifying the development of the County of Peterborough. Many of the historic buildings have been moved to the Village from townships in the County representing a century of time beginning with the Michi Saagiig encampment (1820s) and ending with the Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building representing a 1910-style barn.
At the time when citizens did courageous acts to defend their land, country, communities, they may not have conscientiously known the impact they were having on future generations. Today, we can instantaneously see the results of our efforts. This through both today’s world-wide “24-hour” media and through the Internet’s “real-time” technologies.
We rush, rush, rush. Many decisions are made today without realizing the impact they will have on our future. Today’s society needs to continue on the path of “united” generosity – in kindness, service and actions! We all should reflect on our past – for without it, we would not be where we are today!
Our “History in Motion” action video series encourages viewers to go “Back in Time” and “Reflect on Our Past”!
