What was once a thriving family farm, Kawartha Settlers’ Village is now home to a fascinating collection of over 20 historic homes and buildings. Experience what life was like for pioneers in the Kawarthas as you stroll leisurely through the Village and discover artifacts from 1830 – 1935. Kawartha Settlers’ Village was established in 1990 with the goal to preserve the history and culture of the Bobcaygeon area.

Today, the Village is operated by the Kawartha Region Arts and Heritage Society.

Fun Facts

Take a walk on the wild side

Come visit our Discovery Trail and Environmental Park with a myriad of plant-life, wild flowers, trees and shrubs. It’s also great area for bird watchers as a wide variety of birds found in the Kawarthas may be spotted throughout the year. The Discovery Trail is on the same site as Kawartha Settlers’ Village, meanders around the perimeter, so as you stroll along you will catch glimpses of log homes and historic buildings – and perhaps a sketcher or two – adding to the tranquil atmosphere.
