Abbotsford House

Built as the private residence for Bytown pioneer Alexander Mutchmor, Abbotsford House became a home for the aged and infirm in 1889. Today, it remains an active leisure and resource centre for adults 55 and over. Three original marble fireplace mantels still adorn the parlour and dining room. During Doors Open, only the main floor will be available for viewing.
