Carpentry Shop

This single-storey, cedar log structure was built by museum staff and volunteers in 1972. It is made up of salvaged logs from a small barn found in Derby Township, Grey County. 

The building was moved to Moreston Heritage Village in early 2006, where it was originally interpreted as an 1850s Blacksmith Shop. In the summer of 2022, the shop was converted and is now interpreted as a Carpentry Shop. The spring of 2024 saw Grey Roots volunteers and staff install a wooden floor which beautifully ties the space together. Tour the Carpentry Shop to discover how woodworkers of the past practiced their craft.
