Black Creek Pioneer Village, previously Dalziel Pioneer Park, is an open-air heritage museum in Toronto, The village is a recreation of life in 19th-century Ontario and gives an idea how rural Ontario might have looked in the early-to-mid-19th century. The village is a regular destination for field trips by schoolchildren from the Greater Toronto Area. It was opened in 1960 and is operated by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
Our job was the insulation and window restoration of one of the buildings inside the park. What was difficult about this job was that we could not use modern technology to repair the damages, but had to rely on old 19th century technology in order to maintain the authenticity of the monument. Did you know that in order to seal the windows back then, they used beeswax? It was before the invention of silicone, which is what we modern construction uses.
