Take a walk through time. The Pickering Museum Village brings the pioneer experience to life. It is the largest living history museum in Durham, and a cherished historical secret that we've shared with residents, visitors and the film making community for many years.

The village, nestled on the banks of Duffins Creek in the quaint hamlet of Greenwood, provides a truly distinct setting. Scenic paths wind through the village's 19 heritage buildings dating from as early as 1810, including a blacksmith's shop, log barn and house, school house, temperance house, steam barn and chapel. White picket fences and period gardens lace the dusty street corners where the orchards and apple trees grow wild. The beautiful streetscape of perfectly preserved and restored historical buildings with broad verandas and rustic porches are accompanied by a lush green countryside dotted with wildflowers.

This enchanting place offers infinite possibilities for your film vision.

Please contact Museum staff to inquire about film dates.
