Nestled in the hills of Mulmur Township, the Museum of Dufferin (formerly the
Dufferin County Museum & Archives) opened in 1994. However, the Museum’s roots date to 1963 when the
Dufferin County Historical Society established the Shelburne Pioneer Museum. The facility is home to four
historic buildings and features four galleries that host permanent, long-term
and short-term exhibitions.
The Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath, provides the only
continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Running
along the Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, it spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of
associated side trails.
If you haven’t heard already Mulmur created the BEST small community farmers’ market
in Ontario, at the Museum of Dufferin! The market is open every SUNDAY afternoon (noon to 4 pm) at the
corner of Hwy 89 & 936029 Airport Rd. Rain, shine or wind the market operates from 19 May until 29 Sep.
Local farmers provide in season vegetables, fruit and berries, as well as local baking and crafts.
Earl Rowe Lake provides canoeing, swimming and fishing. Camping for everyone: group
campsites, radio free sites, RV and car camping. Large outdoor swimming pool open from July 1 to Labour Day.
Great hiking trails including one paved trail for accessibility. The fish ladder is a great place to view
salmon spawning in the fall and trout in the spring.
