Wilberforce Red Cross Outpost Historic House Museum

In 1922, the Red Cross Outpost Nursing service in Ontario began here. The service spread rapidly and continued for four decades, providing medical aid for numerous rural areas. This public health service program aided in the development of government-supported health care in Canada. In 1992, the outpost reopened as a museum and, in 2003, was declared a National Historic Site.
