All aboard for an adventure back in time about 100 years – 1914 to be exact! Every Canada Day, Doon Heritage Village (in Kitchener, Ontario) opens its doors for guests to visit and experience life in the early 2oth century (FREE!).
Whether you start your journey through the fascinating Waterloo Region Museum or stroll through the little village, there’s a feeling of a simpler life, perhaps not an easier life, but a life quite different from our busy modern times.
Gone are the days of yore with wooden sidewalks and children playing with hoops and stilts. The old-fashioned clothes and nostalgic shops in this picturesque setting, re-create history to show what life was like in the Waterloo Region when Kitchener was called Berlin.
