STEPPING BACK IN TIME
A FIELD TRIP TO THE HISTORIC VILLAGE OF SPARTA
Trip Coordinator: Beckey Jackson
Car Pooling: Shared rides will be organized. Please offer to drive. Please contact Beckey if you can drive.
Join us on a Spring Day Trip to the historical village of Sparta established in 1813 as a Quaker Settlement . The village has remained a small settlement with many of it’s early buildings still standing and used for galleries museums, shops and lovely quaint homes of significant early Ontario architecture.
Upon arrival in Sparta we will be met at The Forge and Anvil Museum by a member of The Sparta Historical Society for a tour and brief introduction to the village.
We plan lunch at Sparta House Tea Room and Restaurant, a culinary destination with an emphasis on homemade real English fare.
Our next stop, The Peter Robson Art Studio and Gallery offers acclaimed Robson paintings, prints, cards, etc. for viewing and sale. Not to be missed by art lovers. If time allows the Sparta Candles shop built in 1883 and the Village Collective Art studio including Fresh Heritage Herbs sale are highly recommended.
Please contact Beckey to indicate your participation. email@example.com or (519)238-5458.
