Ontario Festivals|Backus Heritage Conservation Area|Backus War of 1812 Re-enactment

"Mr. Backhouse's Mill...
On Saturday, September 11th I was lucky enough to take the drive to Backus Heritage Village in Backus Heritage Conservation Area for the Backus War of 1812 Re-enactment. It was a beautiful sunny September day with over 300 re-enactors present to participate in this great annual event. Backus Heritage Village is a pioneer village in Port Rowan, with more than a dozen buildings. This village is home of the Backhouse mill; this is one of the only grist mills not burned down during the War of 1812."
