About us

Discover the past in two ways with the Burk's Falls and District Historical Society. Go back to school at the Wiseman’s Corner Schoolhouse in Ryerson Township, complete with desks, chalkboard, and an antique bell. Then, step into another era at the Watt Century Farmhouse in Armour Township, a re-creation of an early 1900s-homestead. See Burk's Falls through the eyes of those who settled here 125 years ago.
