Whitehern Historic House and Garden

The Whitehern Historic House and Garden is a mid-19th-century urban estate maintained by the McQuesten family for three generations. It was built in 1848 with a 1930s addition. The home includes original family furnishings from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras in the context of Thomas B. McQuesten’s career in 1939. Visitors can explore period rooms through guided tours.
