About Fanshawe Pioneer Village
Fanshawe Pioneer Village is a regional museum that provides our diverse community with interactive history-based experiences that are enjoyable, meaningful, and inspiring.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village tells the story of rural communities in the former townships of Westminster, London, North Dorchester, Delaware, West Nissouri and Lobo in Middlesex County from 1820 to 1920 and the founding and development of the City of London up to 1840.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village provides facilities and programs that are welcoming and accessible, physically, intellectually and financially.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village is owned and operated by the not-for-profit charity known as the London and Middlesex Heritage Museum with the support of the City of London, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority and the Municipality of Middlesex Centre.
