Upper Canada Village which is located in the Cornwall area is larger combination of relocated, reconstructed and restored buildings which represent life in Upper Canada  during the period of 1784 to 1867. 40 buildings have been relocated here that reflect that period. Glengarry \County Home which is circa 1840, is characteristic of the fine Georgian-style structures built by the loyalists along the St Lawrence, with classical proportions.

The buildings onsite range from a Lutheran Pastor's house to a cheese factory where you can see how diary products were processed and prepared for trade. The Willard Hotel offers great period cuisine in it's restaurant while displaying what overnight accommodation was like in the 1860s. Many other buildings are home t a woollen factory, a bakery, a tine shop, a sawmill, a blacksmith and many other necessary businesses and services which were required during the growth and development of Upper Canada.
