Oakville Museum at the Erchless Estate

The Erchless Estate was once the home of Oakville’s founding family, the Chisholms. It is now the setting for the community's museum. For Digital Doors Open, discover an extensive virtual tour that takes you inside each room of the property – don't miss the Underground Railroad exhibit upstairs! After your virtual tour, take in the video tour on YouTube below (led by the museum's very own Julian Kingston), which features some of the Town of Oakville's online collections – including hundreds of artifacts and historical photos of the town.
