A patch of Canada enclosed within this village will always remain in the 19th century. The open-air museum was opened in 1960, but its houses, churches, stores, and furniture date back to 1860. The name comes from the actual Black Creek, overlooked by the Village which flows into the Humber River. Besides walking amidst ancient buildings, one may visit artisans and watch historical re-enactments. If you need a cozy setting for a certain occasion, renting for special events is also available. The Village is located northwest of Toronto's downtown, and operates between May and late December.
