We went to Cannington Manor on a sunny summer morning. The park actually has two sites, an original old manor house and the town site itself. The costumed interpreters and visitor centre were all well done, and the story of English upper class migrants coming...More

We were glad to get to Cannington Manor before leaving southeast SK. The history is a unique one, and the staff went above and beyond to welcome us and answer our questions. The visitor's centre and other signage had a wealth of information. As others...More

Cannington Manor has wonderful history I had no idea that even existed. I especially enjoyed the guides and their knowledge of the homestead. Having being able to see the artifacts and gaining knowledge of separate pieces was very inspiring. Seeing the staff in original pioneer...More
