Imagine a wheel of cheese weighing 7300 pounds! The Ingersoll Cheese & Agricultural Museum shares this story from 1866 along with other interesting tales about the town. First settled by the father of Laura Secord in 1793 the original village continued to grow. Over the last 200+ years, the town was a destination for runaway slaves, and home to such notables as world-famous evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, a world champion husband and wife speedboat racing team, and internationally renowned wood carver Wilson Jonhston. The museum--voted Ontario's Choice Top Small Museum--brings these and other stories to life through engaging displays and demonstrations.
