Petch House Doors Open Aurora

Petch House
This log cabin belonged to the Petch family, who emigrated in 1818 from Yorkshire, England. The restoration, incorporating materials from the original construction, began in 2011. A rare example of early European residential construction methods brought to Canada in the early 19th century, this house offers a glimpse into the daily life of one of the town’s first Euro-Canadian families.
