Wilson’s Point Historic Site 2020 Opening and Information

The Wilson’s Point Historical Site is opening for the 2020 season on Thursday, July 2nd, 2020!

Life as we know it has changed greatly and with government mandates and restrictions our season is going to look a little different this year.

Unfortunately our monthly events will be postponed until next season and our programming may expand as perimeters are lifted; but for now we will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 10am until 430pm.

Our guides will be on site, you’ll still get to enjoy our trails and beaches and hear of all the fantastic history that has taken place at the Point, but there will be a few rules in place in order to do so.

Our church will have an entrance and exit and everything inside has be rearranged so that social distancing can take place safely.

You will have to answer a Covid Questionnaire before entering and sanitize your hands as well. A sanitizer station will be in place and one of our guides will be there to assist you. You will be greeted inside by another guide who will more than happy to fill you in on historical facts and details about everything Point related and you can still enjoy the displays and purchase items we have for sale. Cash only please.

We hope you’ll be patient with us as there may be a bit of a wait because the number of guest allowed into the church will be restricted and ask too that if you are visiting in groups greater than two that you wear a mask, so please come prepared.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide public washroom facilities this season and the washroom on site will be for employees only. Please know that our site is monitored by cameras and in the past we’ve had issues with visitors peeing willy nilly by the Davidson Trading Post and along the trails. We will be watching and ask that you have respect for our site and surroundings.

Our entry fee is still free, we still have a lot to offer and we are pleased to say that we are still partnered with Beaubears Island interpretive Center for Tours Through Time which will take place every Sunday beginning July 5th for a small fee. Davidson Makes a Point will return next season. Details of this event will be updated soon!

We are promoting staycations this year and we will still have contests and lots to see and do and our staff will be well versed about other great sites to visit in the area. Best to follow our Facebook or Instagram accounts for daily updates and announcements.

We can’t wait to see your smiling faces and thank you for your continued support and patience at this time. See you soon!
