Fairfield Homestead

Loyalist William Fairfield Sr. settled here with his family in 1784. Occupied by six generations until it was donated to the people of Ontario in 1959, the house survives as an outstanding record of 18th-century building techniques, offering valuable links with the contribution of the Loyalists in the development of Canada. Check out nearby Fairfield-Gutzeit House, built by Fairfield’s son.
