The Buxton Museum is a national historic site that tells the story of the first settlers to The Elgin Settlement. Labour Day Weekend is the best time to visit North Buxton as each year the Black community holds a celebration and thousands of descendents of the original Black settlers flock to see historic re-enactments, participate in the parade, and celebrate their history. North Buxton is Ontario’s second largest national historic site and continues to expand it's living history experience for visitors with the recent addition of the oldest standing log cabin built in 1852 by a former slave. Visitors can also tour other original structures built by slaves on the site including the 1861 school, two churches, and a cemetery.
