A visit to the quiet village of Sparta can feel like a trip back in time. The lives of many of its inhabitants throughout the 1800s unfolded in buildings which can still be seen today. You can feel a sense of history when you visit the businesses housed in those heritage structures. And you can explore it further by stopping in at the Forge and Anvil Museum or Sparta Church Museum & Cultural Centre or by taking the self-guided Sparta Walking Tour.
The Port Stanley Terminal Rail (PSTR) marked their 30th anniversary in 2013 and also brought their train into downtown St. Thomas for the first time. It was another milestone in a long list of PSTR achievements, and one which has them excited about expanding their horizons into the future.
