Black Horse Corners Heritage Outbuildings Doors Open Waterloo Region

Black Horse Corners Heritage Outbuildings

The long-vanished crossroads hamlet of Black Horse Corners centred around the Black Horse Inn (1853-75). See inside three outbuildings from that era, adjacent to the hamlet: a barn, smokehouse and stone-built former cheese factory from 1835. Also, during Doors Open, a to-scale, “skeletal” representation of the Black Horse Inn will be assembled on its original footprint at the crossroads.
