A Visit to the Little Village in the ValleyMississauga, Ontario
Architecture, Heritage — Talks and Discussion, Excursion
People of all ages have a great time visiting "The Little Village in the Valley," where they make a trip back in time to an old Ontario village, complete with a train station, a church, mills, shops, stores, and more. The buildings are actually large enough to enter and see displays of period clothing, tools, furniture, household items, toys, and lots more. Pose for pictures with the historically-themed surroundings, sample herbs from the garden, work the handle on a water pump, join in the singing of popular old songs, and talk to our volunteers to learn about days gone by. Often the deer are in the yard to get a drink from the pond, as nature abounds.

I am a retired History teacher who has spent the past twenty years building a little historical village on my property. Located in Ontario's First Heritage District, Meadowvale Village, my village is a recreation of early times in the village's history. My village was named "All-time Favorite Doors Open Site in Ontario" in 2011. I continue working to enhance the experience of my visitors, and recently hosted classes from local schools. I'd like you to see it too!
