About the walk:

Maidstone Museum is home to an amazing collection of community artifacts and the interesting stories behind them. The collection is housed in the historic Maidstone Town Hall near the Puce River. Come and see history come alive as re-enactors along with the curator walk you through the museum to give highlights of the local history and how many of the artifacts are related and were used back in the day.

Also a tour of Maidstone Museum grounds that showcase beautiful established Heritage Native Gardens with over 50 different species plants, trees and shrubs all that serve as edible, medicinal or dying. The gardens were certified as Wildlife Habitat Friendly in 2020 by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. The gardens have many rare trees such as Kentucky Coffee, Choke Cherry, High Bush Cranberry, Paw Paw and the Cucumber Tree which is on the endangered species list.
