Westfield Heritage Village

Volunteers are an essential component to the operation of Westfield Heritage Village. They act as historical interpreters for the public, school groups and motorcoach groups. They provide demonstrations on historic crafts and trades such as blacksmithing, woodworking, quilting, weaving, and cooking. Volunteers also assist in the management of Westfield’s collection of 25,000 artefacts.

For more information on volunteer activities at Westfield Heritage Village, contact Westfield at 519-621-8851 or by email at westfield@conservationhamilton.ca.
