 Wind your way up the tree-lined drive to visit the home of Nova Scotian author Thomas Chandler Haliburton, who lived in this stylish residence from 1836 to 1856. Imagine Victorian Windsor as you explore the twists and turns of this house, where Haliburton created his claim to international fame: the fictional Yankee clock peddler, Sam Slick. Tour the house to see antiques and memorabilia, or walk the old estate featuring an orchard, pond, and trail.

Windsor is renowned for its place in sport as the Birthplace of Hockey®. Travel back in time and history with a visit to the Birthplace of Hockey Museum. The collection of revered hockey artifacts is conveniently located in the Haliburton House Museum, which is just down the road from Long Pond, the Cradle of Hockey where modern-day ice hockey began.
