Park House Museum

The Park House is a year round museum catering to the needs of visiting school children, seniors and the general public. It brings the story of Amherstburg and its people to life through programs and exhibits that are created to engage and inspire all who visit. Historically, the Park House is an early example of Pièce sur Pièce log construction and is said to have been built in the 1790s at the mouth of the Rouge River in Detroit. When Detroit was ceded to the United States, the owners decided to dismantle the building and float it down the Detroit River to Amherstburg.

The Museum strives to collect artifacts and documents that depict people's past in the terms of settlement, cultural achievement, trade and marine history that brought about the growth of the town to its present state. The Park House Tinsmiths began producing tinware (made by volunteers) for sale to the public in 1978.
