Wolseley's Provincial Court House building was constructed in 1893, and is the oldest surviving court house building in the province. The Town Hall and Opera House, built in 1906, is a classic building and is used for many community events. Canada's very first Beaver Lumber was opened in Wolseley by co-founder E. A. Banbury in 1883. Beaver Lumber is now protected by Heritage status. The Banbury House Inn, which was originally built in 1905 as the private home for E. A. Banbury, was moved from its original location on the north bank of Fairly Lake to the west end of Wolseley to allow expansion of Lakeside Care Home in the 1980s. The Banbury House Inn now serves as a bed and breakfast.
Two private residences are also on the Canadian List of Historic Places. The Perley Residence, located at 206 Front Street, is a two-storey brick house which was the home of several prominent Wolseley residents, including the very first miller in town, as well as A. A. Perley.
The home of Wolseley's first mayor, R. A. Magee, immediately south of the Town Hall and Opera House is another heritage property. It is still a private residence.
It has two schools, Dr. Isman Elementary School and Wolseley High School. The recently rebuilt "swinging bridge", has been a feature of Wolseley since 1905. It has a twelve-bed hospital, an eighty-bed nursing home, and two resident doctors.
Wolseley has a modern artificial ice arena, a curling rink, a nine hole golf course and a public swimming beach which is located on the shore of Fairly Lake, the town's most distinguishing feature. This body of water was formed when the Canadian Pacific Railway dammed a creek in order to obtain a water supply for its steam engines. The town was named one of Canada's prettiest, most historic towns by Harrowsmith Country Life in 2000.
Wolseley is home to a thriving arts community and in the downtown area there is an art gallery which is the meeting place of the Wolseley Writers Group, the Wolseley Photography Club, and the Ellisboro Artisans Guild.
