The Cornwall Community Museum and Archives

1. Rich History, Vibrant Present

Let’s kick things off with a bit of time travel, shall we? Cornwall is steeped in history, with roots tracing back to Indigenous communities and early European settlers. From its OG days as a mill town to its important role in Canada’s industrial revolution, every cobblestone street and heritage building transforms you back in time.  

To truly get a glimpse of the past, visit the Cornwall Community Museum and Archives, housed in an ancient stone building dating back over a century. But fear not, history buffs, because Cornwall isn’t stuck in the past! Today, it’s a vibrant city bustling with life, culture, and opportunities.

2. Oh-So Scenic  

Now, who doesn’t love a breathtaking view? Cornwall boasts some of the most stunning options in the Great White North, thanks to its prime location along the St. Lawrence River. Whether you’re into sunset strolls along the waterfront or prefer a bird’s eye view from one of the many lookout points, there’s no shortage of natural beauty. Visit Lamoureux Park with your fur baby or Water Street Park for green grass and a splash pad the whole family can appreciate.

3. Close-Knit Community 

In Cornwall, neighbors aren’t just neighbors—they’re family. In fact, Cornwall is often affectionately referred to as “The Friendly City,” embodying its warm spirit. There’s something special about the tight-knit community vibe that larger cities often lack. From friendly greetings at the local farmer’s market to impromptu street parties, you’ll feel right at home when you set foot in Cornwall. 

4. Family-Friendly Fun 

Calling all parents! Cornwall isn’t just a great place to live—it’s a playground for the whole family. With many parks, playgrounds, and family-friendly attractions dotted around town, boredom is simply not an option.  

And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not hop over to nearby Long Sault for even more outdoor fun? Head to the Long Sault Parkway for some stunning views of the St. Lawrence River. Here, you can picnic, hike, fish, and explore the roads through its eleven beautiful islands. Check out the Lost Villages Museum for a cool peek into the past! 

5. Affordable Living 

Last but certainly not least, let’s talk business—or should we say loonies and toonies? Compared to its big city counterparts, Cornwall offers a refreshingly affordable cost of living without skimping on any perks. From affordable housing options to wallet-friendly entertainment, we love that life in Cornwall is as easy on the bank balance as it is on the eyes.
