Old House Museum

Old House Museum

Visit the Museum

The Old House Museum was originally built in the early 1800s and is notably the oldest home on Wolfe Island.  It was also once Wolfe Island’s only school.  The home has changed ownership a number of times, including once the home of Antoine ‘Tiner’ LaRush.  The home changed hands one final time in 2009 when the Wolfe Island Historical Society obtained it from the Township, and held it’s grand opening on July 28, 2009. 

The Museum holds many stories and artifacts from around the area in hopes of drawing people in both young and old to learn about the history of Wolfe Island and area.

Come visit the Old House Museum!  We would love to see you and share stories!  Maybe you will have a story for us too!

The Wolfe Island Ferry runs year round between Kingston and Wolfe Island.  

During the ferry dock rehabilitation project, the Wolfe Island Ferry is travelling from the Kingston Dock to the Dawson Point Dock. The ferry will continue to dock at Dawson’s point until construction is complete.

Over the summer, visitors can take the free shuttle bus that runs between the dock and the village. View shuttle schedule
