Peterborough County exists today, largely due to our agricultural roots. Towns, villages and hamlets were formed over 150 years ago to serve the needs of the agricultural residents in the area. The Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building at Lang Pioneer Village Museum will pay homage to the families, farms and advancements that have assisted in creating a culture of ambitious and dedicated agricultural leaders, well respected by their peers throughout the community, the province and the world.
The agricultural community is strongly bound in tradition and the Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building will interpret and demonstrate, the bond between the people and the rich land which has had such a strong influence on the economic and historic well-being of the region.
The new Heritage Building will display a multitude of agricultural implements in one space. It will also house a restoration workshop that will enable volunteers to bring agricultural implements to working condition for demonstration. The Peterborough County Agricultural Heritage Building will be a fulsome and accurate depiction of agricultural days gone by.
