Crawford Lake Conservation Area

Crawford Lake Conservation Area

 A place like no other. How many parks within an hour of Toronto boast a meromictic lake surrounded by a boardwalk and a 15th century reconstructed Iroquoian village? (Hint: it’s just us!) Take a step back in time in an Iroquoian longhouse or charge up the ol’ DSLR camera to catch the dragonflies as they skim the surface of the tranquil lake.

The Stonehouse of Campbellville

stonehouse of campbellville
We are an antique stained glass store selling English windows created between 1880 – 1940.  Artisans work on repairing windows on weekdays and are able to demonstrate the methods of working with antique windows. Feel free to ask them any questions you may have expecially about stained glass creation and stained glass design styles. Many of our artisans are available to do commission work such as repairs or creating new windows.
In November and December, we also create a community Christmas display. The Singleton Family Christmas Festival of Lights is open to the public free of charge from mid-November to the end of December. Everyone is welcome. Donations are gratefully accepted and all money raised goes to Halton Women’s Place for its children’s programs.
