Event description

Description

Join ACO London and the London & Middlesex Historical Society for a scenic guided day trip to the town made famous in a song by Stompin' Tom Connors: Tillsonburg – My Back Still Aches When I Hear That Word!

We'll spend the morning on a short driving tour of historic Tillsonburg and a visit to Annandale House, a museum and National Historic Site built in 1883 in the Victorian style known as the Aesthetic Art Movement.

A buffet style lunch will be served at the Mill Tales Inn, a former 1878 pea mill along the Otter Creek, followed by a guided tour of the village of Otterville. Included in this tour are a water-run mill (1845), site of 1856 African Methodist Episcopal Church and Black cemetery, a blacksmith shop, two Quaker cemeteries, an octagonal house and gazebo (1861), and a museum in a former Grand Trunk Railway station (1875). After leaving Otterville, there will be an opportunity to shop at Coyle’s Country Store in Tillsonburg before heading back to London.

Tickets are $60 and include highway coach transportation, admission to all sites and lunch at the Mill Tales Inn.

Tour runs rain or shine. Deadline to purchase is Friday, September 13th. There will be a waiting list if tickets sell out.

Bus departs from the parking lot behind London's Old Courthouse (enter at 50 King Street) at 8:15am with a second pickup at the LTC bus stop at 110 Cherryhill Circle (near Cherryhill Mall) at 8:30am. Please select your preferred pick-up location when registering for tickets.
