School programming is tailored for grades 1 to 6 and includes guided tours of all village buildings, a scheduled lunch break followed by hands-on activities including a visit with the blacksmith, candle making as well as a horse and wagon ride (weather permitting). Teachers may call (902) 651-8515 to book a tour.
Orwell Corner is excited to offer a variety of one of a kind experiences to visitors from May 1 - November 1. Depending on the season, visitors can learn hands-on how to make their own bread and butter, the song and dance of Scottish settlers, or forge their own keepsake with a trained blacksmith (ages 16+). Make the same carriage journey L.M. Montgomery made from Orwell Corner to Macphail's Homestead or listen to the trails of the Acadian Deportation.
Programming suspended for summer 2020. Please check back soon!
