Plan Your Trip
Take a step back in time with the Burk's Falls and District Historical Society. Go back to school at the Wiseman’s Corner Schoolhouse in Ryerson Township, and experience the desks, chalkboard, and antique bell. Then, step into another era at the Watt Century Farm House in Armour Township, a re-creation of an early 1900s-homestead. View Burk's Falls through the eyes of those who settled here 125 years ago.
