Step back in time and picture your self living in the era! The house holds a special place in our family, as my grandmother would tell of visiting her friend there and sliding down the banister! She came from eastern Ontario to be raised by her maternal aunt, a teacher at Sault Collegiate, and her maternal uncle a pressman at the Sault Star newspaper in the late 1800's! They lived just a few blocks east of the old house. Enjoy your visit!

Mon - Sun 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

I've visited this historic site many times as a child. Visiting this site brought back a lot of memories about events and activities that I've attended at this site to learn the history of the Canal. Surprisingly I remembered a lot of information that I learned as a child which proves that they do a good job at teaching children the important history. It was snow covered when I revisited, but the area was plowed and I was able to access the Canal to get a view. I'd recommend a visit to families.
