The best place to stay in Cornwall Ontario!
Cornwall is a bastion of Canadian history, a central part of Upper Canada that has witnessed all 150 of Canada’s years as a nation. What does that mean for you? Well, you don’t get to be 150 without accumulating a few treasures. Check out these spots to find some classic antiques, collectibles, or other storied items that you can take home as a piece of Canadian History.


There are places where as soon as you enter, you’re overwhelmed. Whether it’s by sights, sounds, aromas or a sense of palpable history, it’s almost like your senses are so tickled that they have to shut down for a second and leave you gaping in awe.

Dr. Johnson’s Antiques is one of those places. With a showroom measuring over 6,000 square feet and over 10,000 items at any time, Dr. Johnson’s is a must visit when you’re in Cornwall. Stocked with antiques and antique furniture reproductions that are priced to sell, Dr. Johnson’s is stocked with pieces of history that you can take home and part of your life. And if you’re not looking to buy, it’s great to just poke around and think about how people have lived over the years… though I can’t guarantee that you won’t buy anything if you do!


Nearby Morrisburg hosts the region’s biggest flea market. Open every Sunday, the McHaffie Flea Market is home to countless antiques, local crafts, and delights of every stripe. Featuring over 150 booths, free parking and delicious local food vendors, you’re guaranteed to find something you love. Swing on by with the family and have fun digging for treasure!
