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.

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

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

Partnership is a two-way street. Find out how we share the responsibility in our community.
