Welcome to O'Hara Mill Homestead & Conservation Area  OM logo

Enjoy a wonderful experience while exploring the 85 acre Conservation Area which includes pioneer buildings, beautiful gardens, nature trails, sheltered picnic areas and a  lovely mill pond with its new dam and covered bridge.

Five of the original 11 pioneer buildings occupy the site along with additional buildings to represent the lifestyle of the past. These buildings have been restored by dedicated craftsmen and volunteers for the enjoyment of everyone and particularly for those who value the importance of preserving our heritage.

There's nothing quite like it........anywhere in Ontario!!

*******************

Check out "News and what's New" to see the stone puller in its new home , as well as logging cedar for new shingles for the School House.

Also keep an eye on "Machine Restorations" for work being done over the winter on our donated vintage farm machinery.

*******************

There are still a few splashes of color on Mother Natures pallette, so come out and enjoy it while it's still there!!

 After the weekend of August 31, the grounds will remain open for the rest of the year, but buildings will be locked and closed up for the winter (excluding our winter Christmas event). Feel free to come wander around or take a hike on the trails. The fall colours that many folks come to see will soon be gone so come enjoy them while you can.



*******************
