Sharon Temple National Historic Site is museum and special events venue nestled on 4.5 acres of green space located just north of Newmarket, Ontario. The museum hosts regular events, concerts, and specialized tours of the Sharon Temple, eight historic buildings and heritage-inspired gardens. The site is available for weddings, corporate events, rentals, and filming.

Learn more about the history of the Children of Peace, early settlers and the builders of the architecturally stunning Sharon Temple, their resistance to fighting in the War of 1812, their participation in the Rebellion of 1837, and how they played an instrumental role in the fight for democracy in Canada.
