There aren’t many historic properties in Canada able to claim they span the century and a half marked by the country’s upcoming 150th birthday on July 1st—but our Greenwood Centre for Living History easily matches it, and more. After all, Greenwood’s oldest section is more than 100 years older than Confederation’s 1867 landmark date, and already more than a century old when Canada was born.
We will be proudly celebrating this history by inviting everyone to come and discover Greenwood this summer.
All in all, it’s the perfect time to discover more about Greenwood! If you have already paid us a visit, you can look forward to a special event or two that will showcase some artefacts seen for the first time, and in a unique setting that will pay homage to this year of historical significance for Canada.
And if you have not yet had a guided tour of the house and gardens, or enjoyed a cup of tea and homemade goodies on our beautiful waterfront porch, put a Greenwood date on your calendar because much awaits you at this venerable historic site which began in 1732 and was later home to five generations of the same family.
We are waiting to welcome you!
Terry O’Shaughnessy, Executive Director
