This house is interesting from an architectural standpoint and is a-typical for the place and time.
The house does have a connection to Sir John A. and they have capitalized on this well, providing an excellent perspective on his life - personal and professional.
Great little museum and love the garden etc. being kept as would have been at the period...

Lots of history about our 1st prime Minsiter, John A. MacDonald. The guides in costumes make it even better. Beautiful house and the price of the visit is really cheap. Worth the stop.

A lovely slice of history in a beautiful part of Kingston. Step back in time and wander the grounds and the building at your leisure.
