Established in 1967 by the County of Peterborough to commemorate the centennial of Canada’s Confederation, Lang Pioneer Village Museum seeks to preserve the history of the area. The 25-acre site, between two historic mills (the Lang Grist Mill and Hope Saw Mill), was the ideal location for the layout of a 19th-century village exemplifying the development of the County of Peterborough. Many of the historic buildings have been moved to the Village from townships in the County representing a century of time beginning with the Michi Saagiig encampment (1820s) and ending with the Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building representing a 1910-style barn. Each year, thousands of visitors from around the world take a trip back in time with them.

Nestled along the banks of the historic Indian River, Lang Pioneer Village Museum features over thirty restored and furnished historic buildings constructed between 1825 and 1910, in addition to several replica buildings.

 Villagers of all ages, dressed in authentic historical attire, go about their daily chores and trades contributing to the authenticity of this living history experience. At Aabnaabin Camp, the First Nations story is told by Indigenous interpreters through a partnership with Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations.  Lang Pioneer Village is a living monument to the faith, endurance, and ingenuity of the First Nations and settlers and to the generosity of their descendants.
