Doors Open: Whitehern Historic House & Garden

Enjoy a leisurely visit emphasizing recent restoration work in the main and upper halls, including impressive faux finishing by Lori Le Mare to create the illusion of different types of wood.

Built in 1848, Whitehern is one of the finest examples of an intact historic home in Canada. Three generations of the family lived in the home from 1852 until 1968. Among the last generation were six children who never married. In 1959 the three surviving members of the family bequeathed the home to the City with all its original contents. It contains elements from many time periods – Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian – dating up to 1939 when the Honourable Thomas McQuesten was Minister of Highways. Explore the heritage of Victorian ideas and possessions that influenced life at Whitehern on the eve of World War II.

10:00 AM to 4:00 PM; For All Ages; This is a free event. No museum admission fees.
