Glanmore is an excellent example of Second Empire architecture in Canada. Now a regional museum, it was built for banker J.P.C. Phillips. This year, with Glanmore celebrating its 50th anniversary as a museum and its 140th since the house was constructed, it will be hosting a special exhibit in the basement. Visitors can also take part in a scavenger hunt.
