Let me start by saying that history was never my “forte”. This activity is quite impressive. There is so much detail within those walls that it is merely not enough time to ackledge and appreciate the splendor of it all. Very affordable. A must see.

Located in Brockville's Millionaires Row this old large Edwardian mansion is a must visit if you are in Brockville. Parts I believe have been restored, but the interior is quite amazing. Young and old should enjoy this gem at the start of the 1000 islands.

This house is complete to the time period. The furnishings are original to the house. The house was donated to the province as a museum by the Fulford family. Guided tours offer the interesting historical background.

The staff is amazing! I have been there 5 times now. So much to see and learn. The craftsmanship of the house is breath taking. Alot of Canadian history is tied this land mark. Well worth the trip to Brockville.

Hi, great question. Unfortunately when we were there the entire tea room was being renovated. Perhaps a call to them directly would yield you better results. Good luck and enjoy the property. Richard and Jill
