Kawartha Settlers’ Village


Kawartha Settlers’ Village ~ Bobcaygeon
What was once a thriving family farm, Kawartha Settlers’ Village is now home to a fascinating collection of over 20 historic homes and buildings. Experience what life was like for pioneers in the Kawarthas as you stroll leisurely through the Village and discover artifacts from 1830 – 1935. Kawartha Settlers’ Village was established in 1990 with the goal to preserve the history and culture of the Bobcaygeon area.

Today, the Village is operated by the Kawartha Region Arts and Heritage Society.
Our Vision
The Kawartha Region Arts & Heritage Society fosters cultural heritage, education, arts and recreation.
Our Mission
To develop and operate Kawartha Settlers’ Village, a place where people come to experience culture, arts and heritage and to promote the artistic interest and history of the Kawartha region.
Take a walk on the wild side
Come visit our Discovery Trail and Environmental Park with a myriad of plant-life, wild flowers, trees and shrubs. It’s also great area for bird watchers as a wide variety of birds found in the Kawarthas may be spotted throughout the year. The Discovery Trail is on the same site as Kawartha Settlers’ Village, meanders around the perimeter, so as you stroll along you will catch glimpses of log homes and historic buildings – and perhaps a sketcher or two – adding to the tranquil atmosphere.
