Fairfield House stands west of Kingston, Ontario,  on the lakefront of land granted to William Fairfield as a Loyalist in 1784.  This timber-framed farmhouse was built in 1793 as the family’s second dwelling on the farm being cleared and established for their support.

Fairfield House was built by hand from local timber and limestone by men using skills learned before war disrupted their lives in the mid-1770s. When visitors enter Fairfield House, they are within the artifact that is the focus of their guided tour from limestone cellar to high-raftered attic. The house is being preserved to have visible its original building material and techniques, as well as changes the family made during the 1800s

Fairfield House is at Amherstview in Fairfield Park, where there is parking just west of the Gateway of the Loyalist Parkway. The walk to the house follows the first road joining Kingston and settlement to the west. Views across the lake connect with the essential transportation link that preceded the road. The picket fence opens for access to the limestone front yard and the 1793 homestead with verandahs added about 1860.

Guided tours are available from Canada Day through August. The regular weekly schedule is Wednesday through Sunday, from 11 AM to 4:30 PM.
