Wesleyville Village



a charming historic village located in rural ontario being revitalized by friends



Wesleyville village is a 19th century village located on beautiful Lakeshore Road in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada on the shores of Lake Ontario. The village is located on a quiet, seldom-travelled stretch of Lakeshore Road west of Port Hope, Ontario, and it exudes a relaxed, peaceful aura, with the only sounds coming from the birds that flit from tree to tree and among the time-weathered headstones in the graveyard at the rear of the grounds. The property is a lush, green oasis, harkening back to a simpler time when horses and buggies ferried parishioners from surrounding farms along country roads to Sunday service.


ACKNOWLEDGING WESLEYVILLE’S INDIGENOUS HERITAGE

Throughout time the Wesleyville Village site on the bountiful shoreline of Lake Ontario has been occupied and respected by various indigenous peoples: the Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg and Metis people. The Friends of Wesleyville Village wish to acknowledge the dynamic relationship between this environment and our indigenous neighbours. Their societies have managed this land throughout history. The stewardship lessons we learn from this heritage relationship and their cultures can be applied to benefit future generations.
