Greenbank: The Heart of Reach Township
Scugog Shores Historical Museum
Port Perry , Ontario

Enter

   The exhibit explores
Greenbank’s history over 125
years from 1835 to 1960,
highlighting the questions of
why the four founding
families decided to settle
the district, how they
survived the challenges of
their agricultural
subsistence and how their

lives reflected similar
struggles faced by settlers
across Ontario. The Scugog
Shores Museum uses artifacts,
hand-written documents
including the diary of Mr.
Cragg, photographs and
personal memories of the
community, all found in the
three buildings from

Greenbank in the Museum
Village, to document the
emergence of this quiet rural
community north of the
booming port town of Port
Perry and the prosperous
grain centre of Prince
Albert.
