The Huron County Library has been highlighting the hidden gems found across Huron County through our In Your Backyard speaker series and for those who were unable to attend, we will share some of those gems right here on our website! Join us as we travel all directions of the County!
To the eastern side of Huron County, you will find the communities of Seaforth, Brussels, Egmondville, Cranbrook, Kippen, Vanastra, Walton, Winthrop and more. Almost all of these communities boost a rich history – from Seaforth’s downtown core, which is a heritage conservation district, to Brussels’ Victorian homes, to its Logan’s Mill and beyond!
RECREATION: Seaforth is bursting at the seams with recreational activities for all ages – from its outdoor pool and splash pad, to its off leash dog park, to lawn bowling and pickleball, to shuffleboard and even a full 18-hole golf course!
PARKS: There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors with a variety of parks, playgrounds and more!
HUNGRY?: Seaforth has a number of different restaurants to keep you well fed after a day of sun and fun – from Filipino cuisine, to Chinese, to Canadian and beyond!
GROUPS & CLUBS: For those looking to join a group or club, Seaforth has many to choose from – from becoming a member of the Britannia Masonic Lodge or the Royal Canadian Legion, to the Seaforth Optimist Club or the Seaforth Lions, to even Seaforth & District Horticultural Society (for those with a green thumb)!
BRUSSELS: If Brussels had a town-wide theme for the last few years, it would be “upgrades” – with a number of landmarks getting much well-deserved attention. From the Brussels, Morris and Grey Community Centre slated to get close to $5 million dollars in renovations, to the Logan’s Mill being upgraded to include washrooms, walking trails, and playground equipment, to breathing life back into an 1862 barn, today known as the Brussels Four Winds Barn.
Brussels is also home to some of the most unique attractions in all of Huron County – like its famous Fairy Door Trail and The Old Shop, a collection of some of the most memorable vintage items around!
