Arts, Culture and Heritage in Peterborough & the Kawarthas

Living History

Heritage and culture are very much a part of day-to-day life in Peterborough & the Kawarthas.

Indeed, Peterborough is a surprisingly old city, while smaller towns such as Lakefield, Keene, Bridgenorth and Warsaw are rich in heritage charm. And when driving past century-old farmsteads or cruising the historic Trent-Severn Waterway, you’re always reminded that this is a place with a long and proud past.
