Willowbank Doors Open Niagara-on-the-Lake


Willowbank is a neoclassical estate house (1834) situated in a picturesque landscape. As a private residence, the estate changed hands several times. The site has over 8,000 years of documented human use, as Indigenous people used the ravine as a portage route. The lower campus is the Laura Secord School, built in 1914 (an extension was built in the 1950s). Learn more about Willowbank as part of Digital Doors Open by watching the video below, or take a campus tour of this exciting heritage conservation school.
