The Caledon Museum is split into two buildings depicting very different parts of local history.
The Victorian House houses an abundance of artifacts that reflect the true spirit and legacy of the community. If you’re visiting on a Friday make sure you get there in time to watch a bread baking demonstration in the old working Victorian kitchen – you might even be lucky enough to purchase a loaf or two.
The house has artefacts from 1840 to 1900 so take a step back in time and find out how things worked then.
At the Masonic Lodge you’ll be given a visual historic recollection of the coloured community of the area before the Group Areas Act was put into place in the 1950’s. Make your way to one of the lovely Caledon Restaurants before heading back to your accommodation in Caledon for the night.
