Book your Museum Group Tour today and enjoy visiting beautiful historic Cannington.

The Cannington Historical Society is a not-for-profit corporation, run by volunteers. We own and operate a local history “village museum” of rescued buildings and artifacts that attracts over 2,000 visitors seasonally.

Join our community!

It is our intent to restore the Blacksmith Shop (c. 1881) at

21 Laidlaw St S as a working shop and museum area.
