150th anniversary mark

Historical Walking Tour: Explore the history of Tillsonburg!

March 2, 2022 is the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Tillsonburg. To celebrate, the 150 Committee has developed a self-guided historical walking tour in conjunction with the Downtown Tillsonburg Business Improvement Area.

To participate, all you need to do is put on your walking shoes and head downtown! 


Part 1: Downtown Banners with QR code*

Throughout the downtown area you'll find several brightly coloured 150th street banners. Take your smartphone, open your phone's camera, and point your phone at the QR code on the banner. You may need to zoom in a bit to put just the QR code in the frame, but once you do, your phone will do the rest. When asked if you would like to go to the link, select yes and you'll be taken to a page that provides more information about the image.

*Requires smartphone with internet access (i.e. data plan or WiFi)

Part 2: Storefront Posters

Don't have a smartphone? No problem. You'll also find historical plaque posters in storefront windows that provide more information about particular buildings, blocks and businesses.
