The overall allure of this township's village core, with its 19th-century red-brick buildings, their slate roofs, and American vernacular style, reflects the origins of the pioneers who settled here circa 1799. Coburn Park features a public work of art, a life-sized depiction of a painting by Frederick Simpson Coburn (1871-1960), one of Canada’s most well-known artists and native of the township. St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (1842) was even immortalized on Canadian two-dollar bills from 1954 to 1975. The Melbourne Ridge United Church (1858) is a site of interest, as is the Richmond County Historical Society's museum.
