The Adelaide Hunter Hoodless National Historic Site
Built in 1830 by John Bray and purchased by the Hunter family in 1851, the Homestead was the family home for the Hunter's until 1906. The property remained in private ownership until 1959 when the FWIC purchased the home along with three of the original 140 acres to preserve and operate as a museum dedicated to depicting Victorian farm life and Adelaide Hunter Hoodless' childhood in rural Ontario.
We are open for tours by appointment only and will follow the Government of Ontario Ministry of Health's protocols. Special seasonal events will be planned year-round.
