Virtual Exhibit - Tillsonburg Pottery Works 

During the 1880's the Tillsonburg Pottery Works was the only successful commercial pottery in Oxford County. Operating from January 1882 until its closure in August 1886, the works was located near the present day Customer Service Centre.

During its brief four year operation, the pottery would see several different proprietors and operate under several different names. 

Today, Tillsonburg Pottery pieces are highly sought after by collectors.
