The Backus-Page House Museum is located within the grounds of the John E. Pearce Provincial Park, situated within a restored Georgian style house which was constructed in 1850. It is one of the first brick homes built in what would eventually become Dunwich Township. The house was commissioned by Andrew and Mary Jane Backus. The Backus family was one of several families that had obtained land from Colonel Thomas Talbot and settled in the area which quickly came to be known as Little Ireland (a namesake due to the Irish ancestry of the settlers). The property that Andrew built his house on was given to him by his grandmother, Mary Storey, who received her original land grant in 1809. Upon the death of Andrew Backus in 1865 the estate along with what remained of the original land grant allotted to Mary Storey was bequeathed to his son, Andrew Storey Backus. Andrew Storey Backus sold the northern portion of that bequest, where in the house was located, to Robert Kennedy of Leskinfere Gorey, Co. Wexford, Ireland. Mr. Kennedy only owned the property 2 or 3 years before he returned to Ireland. The Backus-Page House and property was obtained by Jonas Page in 1925. The Page family had settled in the area in 1845 and maintained property further up Lakeview Line. Members of the Page family resided on the estate and farmed the property for over 40 years. The house underwent a number of physical changes as it aged, moving it away from its original 1850’s state. Morley and Grace Page were the last of the Pages to live on the farm and they sold it to the Ministry of Natural Resources in 1968. The Ministry of Natural Resources currently retains ownership of the Backus-Page House. The Ministry has entered into a lease agreement with the Tyrconnell Heritage Society. The society was incorporated in 1994 with the express purpose of restoring the house and property to its 1850’s condition. In 1998 the society undertook a restoration of the property, renamed the house in tribute to both its longtime owners and undertook a mandate of preservation and historical education regarding the estate and the Talbot Settlement in general.

The Martintown Grist Mill is architecturally significant as a rare surviving example of a substantial, mid-19th century, Ontario grist mill located on the banks of the Raisin River in Martintown. Of the large number of mills built in Ontario in the 19th century, the Martintown grist mill is more substantial than many, being constructed entirely of stone. Comparatively, most Ontario mills were built of wood or a combination of wood and stone. Devoid of an external water-wheel, the Martintown Grist Mill is also notable as an early Ontario mill to take advantage of early turbine style technology that utilized horizontal water-wheels, powered by a water course running through the bottom of the building. Initially appearing in Canada in the 1840s, these internal, submerged water-wheels had the advantage of being unaffected by seasonal floods, low volumes of water and freezing weather, thereby remaining ice free. The Mill has a local history museum and hosts a farmers market and local artist exhibit in the summer on Sundays from 25 June to 17 Sept.

The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is a National Trust Resilient Historic Places Winner, and Canada’s industrial textile history museum. We interpret the history of the woollen textile industry in the Mississippi River Valley, and the effects it had on the social, cultural and industrial development of the region. We also provide exhibits and education on fibre arts and a centre for the study of industrial textiles, while preserving our historic building and artifacts. We acknowledge that this sacred land on which Mississippi Mills is now located has been a site of human activity for over 10,000 years and is rich in Indigenous history. This land is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation. We are grateful to the Algonquin ancestors who cared for the land and water in order that we might meet here today.
