President’s House Doors Open Guelph

President’s House

Built in 1882 by local stone masons on the current site of Creelman Hall, this house was the University of Guelph president’s residence from 1928-2003. In 1912, the house was jacked up and moved across College Avenue to make way for Creelman Hall. Now used for entertaining, it contains an outstanding collection of furniture and Canadian art. Visit to watch, listen and learn more about the President's House.
