The Cedar Hollow Neighbourhood
Cedar Hollow is one of London’s newest developments located just east of Highbury between the North Thames River and Fanshawe Park Road. The development is composed largely of single family detached homes. The area makes use of the back drop of the Thames allowing for numerous properties in the neighbourhood to back onto green space.
Fanshawe Golf Course
Fanshawe Golf Course is located in the northeast area of London overlooking Fanshawe Lake. It opened for play in 1958 and offers diverse challenges on the two 18 hole layouts. The Traditional Course features tree-lined fairways while the more recent Quarry Course has more of a links design. In addition, a practice and instruction facility incorporates the 9 hole Parkside Course. This facility is the first in Canada to be fully accessible to physically challenged golfers and is a great place for the entire family to learn and enjoy the game.

Fanshawe Pioneer Village
Fanshawe Pioneer Village is an early example of the museum type known as a “Pioneer Village,” initially developed in mid 20th century Ontario by Conservation Authorities. This type of museum was created as a natural extension of the core mandate of Conservation Authorities to provide an alternate use for heritage structures relocated during the creation of water reservoirs. Founded by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority in 1956 and opened in 1959, Fanshawe Pioneer Village was developed in partnership with the University of Western Ontario and continues to exhibit the values and original mandate of its founder, Wilfred Jury. From 2.2 acres on a peninsula of land in Fanshawe Conservation Area, Fanshawe Pioneer Village has grown to over 30 original and replica buildings on 46 acres.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village tells the story of rural communities in the former townships of Westminster, London, North Dorchester, Delaware, West Nissouri and Lobo in Middlesex County from 1820 to 1920 and the founding and development of the City of London up to 1840. This chronological framework starts at the time of initial settlement within the Upper Thames River watershed, follows the development of farms and then crossroads, villages and towns, and ends during a period of migration to cities that brought dramatic change to rural communities.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village is owned and operated by the not-for-profit charity known as the London and Middlesex Heritage Museum with the support of the City of London, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, the Municipality of Thames Centre and the Municipality of Middlesex Centre.
