Christ Church Community Museum is located in the village of Lakefield, known as the "Cradle of Canadian Literature". The museum, which is housed in Christ Church, houses important historical artifacts and displays of Christ Church and the 1855 burial grounds, the Strickland family history, Lakefield's literary history (Susanna Moodie, Catharine Parr Traill, Isabella Valancy Crawford, Margaret Laurence), and pictorial displays of Lakefield from the late 1800's. Still an active Anglican church, built in 1853 under the leadership of Col. Samuel Strickland, Christ Church is used as a seasonal museum operated by community volunteers.
