Summer is winding down and it is time for the annual Heritage Farm Show at the Backus-Page House, located just south of Wallacetown. Demonstrations planned over the two day event feature threshing, a working steam engine, farm horses, wagon rides and historic farming interpretive displays. While on site, tour the Backus-Page House Museum where costumed interpreters will be available to take visitors on a trip back through time to the year 1850. The current exhibit titled “Saint Peter’s Anglican Church- Celebrating 184 Years”, runs until Thanksgiving Day. The exhibit allows visitors an opportunity to see rare items from the church that are not often made available for public viewing. With so much to do, it is easy to work up a big appetite. The Heritage Farm Show does not disappoint providing a BBQ lunch on both days along with a bean pot on Saturday. The Sunday pancake breakfast runs from 9 am to 11am. The worship service starts at 11 am on the lawn of the museum and the second day of the farm show activities begins at 12 noon.
