Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead

Situated in the rolling hills of Brant County, the Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead is the birthplace and childhood home of a Canadian original. Adelaide’s father, David Hunter, purchased the Homestead from John Bray (War of 1812 veteran) in 1852 and the family owned the property until 1906.
Adelaide’s childhood experiences inspired her during her twenty years of publlic life. She was involved in the establishment and/or growth of many organizations which have since become Canadian institutions: the Women’s Institute, the Victorian Order of Nurses, the YWCA and the National Council of Women for Canada. She also initiated the teaching of Domestic Science in the public school system in Ontario. She died while speaking on stage in February, 1910.
