Casa Toscana (Farewell House) Doors Open Grimsby

Casa Toscana (Farewell House)

Farewell House, now home to Casa Toscana, was built by the Woolverton family in 1839. This house features an eclectic combination of architectural elements. The Woolvertons ran a medical practice here until the 1980s. A memorial iron gate from the original house is now in the gardens at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital, commemorating the family’s contribution to Grimsby health care.
