History buffs and nature enthusiasts will delight in all that O’hara Mill Pioneer Village has to offer. This 85 acre conservation area is home to pioneer buildings, nature trails, charming gardens, and a quaint pond. The restored pioneer buildings preserve over 120 years of agricultural and domestic life. The O’Hara family’s original homestead from the 1800s is one of the many buildings available to explore. The original farmhouse, water-powered sawmill, carriage house, blacksmith and woodworking shops, schoolhouse, and several other features still stand in the park. Along with this abundant history, there are beautiful, well-maintained trails — easy hiking for visitors of all experience levels. The park hosts several events throughout the year, including “Frontier Fridays” for kids ages 6-12 in July and August, and several Christmas special events, including candlelight carols, sleigh rides, and bonfires. Make sure you come back to visit O’Hara Mill Pioneer Village in each season to experience all that it has to offer!

Outfitted in wetsuits, we set off from Lowville Park on stand up paddles boards and navigated our way all the way to Lake Ontario, a distance we estimated to be about 36 km. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
