Tour the 1877 Wellington County House of Industry and Refuge

Perhaps you would like a more in-depth tour of the Museum grounds. Tours can be arranged for you or your group. 

Tours consist of an in depth presentation about the history of the Wellington County House of Industry and Refuge by a knowledgeable staff member, a question and answer session, and admission to the Museum itself. Guided tours can also be arranged to the Poorhouse Cemetery and 1877 Barn by request.

Excellent for bus tours!
