Discover Victorian splendor at Glanmore National Historic Site in friendly Belleville, Ontario. Belleville makes an ideal summer day trip from the Greater Toronto Area and is located along Highway 401, approximately 1.5 hours east of Toronto, on the shores of the Moira River and scenic Bay of Quinte.

One of Belleville’s finest homes, Glanmore was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in recognition of its exceptional 2nd Empire architecture. Glanmore was built in 1882-3 for wealthy banker J.P.C Phillips (1842-1912) and his wife Harriet Dougall Phillips (1839-1915).

The grand interior has been restored to its 1880s appearance and includes beautiful hand-painted ceilings, ornate woodwork and reproductions of the original Wilton carpets. The exterior and grounds have also been accurately restored.

The rooms of the historic house feature original furnishings as well as beautiful European marquetry furniture, decorative objects and European fine art from the Couldery Collection. Animal paintings by Horatio Henry Couldery (1832-1918), a noted British artist, give Glanmore’s Couldery Collection international significance. This collection has been described as “…one of the most extraordinary collections of Victorian dog and animal paintings in the world.”
