Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum


The Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum is the perfect place to take the family for a picnic or park play day! Bring your dogs and picnic lunch and enjoy the 6.5 acres of Parkland under 200 year old sugar-maple trees. The site offers guided and self-guided tours of eight heritage buildings from the early 1800s, in addition to the architectural masterpiece, the Sharon Temple.
The building was built entirely by wood and took seven years to complete in the winter months between 1825 and 1832. Its design makes it acoustically perfect, the ideal place to hold concerts.
Annual events at the museum include a Classic Car Show in August, Heritage Celebration in June, Canada Day, and Illumination, a candlelit concert inside the Temple. In addition to events, they offer the site as a rental facility, wedding venue, summer camps, and jobs for students. For more information visit
