Welcome to Lang Pioneer Village

Since 1967, it has been our mission to preserve and authentically recreate the history of Peterborough County. Each and every day we strive to provide visitors with an accurate and interactive view of the life of a 19th-century settler in rural Ontario.

Our costumed interpreters tell the pioneer story as they demonstrate traditional chores, trades and pastimes. Come see our blacksmith work a hunk of iron into an ornate fire stoker and enjoy the enticing aromas of traditional recipes baked over an open fire. Each day we bring history to life in an engaging way as we welcome you into our homes and businesses.

We invite you to step back in time with us!



We respectfully acknowledge that Lang Pioneer Village Museum is located on the Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig territory and in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig and Chippewa Nations, collectively known as the Williams Treaties First Nations, which include: Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Rama, Beausoleil and Georgina Island First Nations.

Lang Pioneer Village Museum respectfully acknowledges that the Williams Treaties First Nations are the stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters in perpetuity, and that they continue to maintain this responsibility to ensure their health and integrity for generations to come.
