Wind your way up the tree-lined drive to visit the home of Nova Scotian author Thomas Chandler Haliburton, who lived in this stylish residence from 1836-1856.

Imagine Victorian Windsor as you explore the twists and turns of this house, where Haliburton created his claim to international fame: the fictional Yankee clock pedlar, Sam Slick.

Travel back in time and history with a visit to the Windsor Hockey Heritage Museum renowned for its place in sport as the Birthplace of Hockey®.

The revered collection of hockey artifacts is conveniently located in the Haliburton House Museum and just down the road from Long Pond, the Cradle of Hockey where modern day ice hockey began.
