Burk’s Falls and District Historical Society

The Burk’s Falls and District Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the deep-rooted heritage of the Burk’s Falls area while offering an informative, educational and interactive learning environment for visitors of all ages. Visitors are invited to attend both the Watt Century Farmhouse Heritage Centre and the Wiseman’s Corner Schoolhouse Heritage Centre as each location provides a glimpse into the past unique to each site. Take a step back in time and see how a one room schoolhouse served the communities children for roughly 10 years, or explore historical artifacts and rich local stories which tell the history of pioneer life on the farm.

Both Heritage Sites are staffed by dedicated volunteers during operating hours, please join the wonderful volunteers who are committed to preserving our history, and visit both locations while visiting the Village. Visit our events page for details on events and celebrations hosted by the Historical site.
