The Road to Culloden – Scotland Forever

We offer our museum grounds to the reenactors of 1745-1746 who represent the Jacobites, the Army of King James and the Government Forces of the Hanoverians.  Speak with the reenactors and learn about Scottish history that resulted in the Highland Clearances sending Scottish settlers to western Elgin County and other places throughout the world.

Museum and Agricultural Centre tours can be had at the usual admission rate of $10/adult and $5/child.                No food booth will be on site so we suggest bringing a picnic lunch.

Reenactors please contact Chris Timm to register your participation with this formRebellionof1745@yahoo.com
