Can You Dig It Perth County's Agricultural Roots Exhibition

Celebrate Perth County's rich agricultural history with this exploration of early settlement and farming practices.

Imagine standing outside and looking out across the land.  Instead of rolling fields and crops dotted with farmhouses and towns, picture endless forests and swamps.  That is how Perth County looked before the late 1820-'s, when the first European settlers arrived.  

When the Canada Company purchased this land from the British Crown with the goal to develop farmland, it was wilderness.  At first, surveyors laid out the concession roads that determined the plots of land for farming.  Then the settlers who occupied the lots took on the hard work of clearing the land, raising homes and growing crops.

You will learn about the early days of building communities, homes and farms in Perth County.



This event is wheelchair accessible.

Cost: $7/A, $6/SR/ST/CH, $20/Family (These prices include HST)

Location: Stratford Perth Museum, Stratford, 4275 Huron Street, Stratford
