Annandale National Historic Site offers programs throughout the year to help visitors of all ages learn more about the history of Tillsonburg. 

Annandale NHS is excited to be offering programming for the month of August on our beautiful lawn. Registration numbers are limited so that if the weather is inclement (too hot or raining), we can move into the second floor Program room, which has Provincial capacity limit restrictions in place. Register early to avoid disappointment and remember to dress appropriately for the lawn and bring along your water bottle.
