St. Jacobs Walking Tour

St. Jacobs might look like a town frozen in time, but its history tells another tale. This small village blends the modern and traditional but always stays connected to its roots.

This town has made a big name for itself, and the story is best told through intriguing local tales: the milling company that pioneered new technology in 1875; the early schoolteacher from Sierra Leone, the woman whose love for books built the library; the horse that delivered the mail for decades and a hardware store that became a nation-wide company.

Our 75-minute guided walking tour is led by locals who know the town best. You will leave feeling happier, healthier and smarter! Or maybe you won’t want to leave!

  • Arrive 10 – 15 minutes in advance to check in. If you arrive when the walk starts, you’re already late!
  • Bring a mask or face covering – with very narrow sidewalks and lots of visitors in town, it’s not always possible to keep a 2 m distance
  • We walk rain or shine or snow!
  • The walk begins and ends at the parkette beside The Mennonite Story & the Scotia Bank, 1406 King Street, St. Jacobs

A wonderful experience. A great way to connect with friends while learning fascinating history. Just the right amount of walking. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and very open to conversation/digression, but still kept on track. We would definitely do this again.
