Historic Bovaird House

Historic Bovaird House is an exceptional example of a mid-19th-century Ontario farmhouse, built in the Georgian style. Volunteers have endeavoured to restore the house to its original appearance. Authentic artifacts and period craftsmanship demonstrate the history of this house, which contains five fireplaces, original plank flooring and hand-blown windowpanes imported from England. Michael Avis, from the Friends of Historic Bovaird House, has been active in caring for the property for 22 years by maintaining its stories and history. As part of Digital Doors Open, join him on a tour of the house in the video below, as well as the log cabin and grounds, where you will experience Brampton’s pioneer heritage first hand. You will also meet long-time volunteer, gardener and groundskeeper, Gail Armstrong.
