History & Museums

A rich past makes for an interesting day exploring our museums

Explore the history that helped shape our communities.

First settled by United Empire Loyalists and later by American and European pioneers, Lennox & Addington County is alive with reminders of a rich past. The family names of the earliest settlers endure and hundreds of grand Victorian homes and farmsteads still stand as symbols of an era of hard work and bustling growth. We invite you to tour our great County, and learn about the history that helped shape our communities into what they are today.
