History comes alive when you visit two of Brampton’s prominent historic homes where visitors can enjoy a glimpse of local pioneer life as it was in the mid 19th century.
William and Mossie Bovaird, wanting to ensure the preservation of a reminder of our pioneer past, donated the house to the City of Brampton in 1985. The circa 1852 Historic Bovaird House, a classic five-bay Georgian-style farmhouse sits in a two-acre park-like setting along with the circa 1845 Pendergast Log House. The early log building was donated by a local developer who relocated the significant heritage building to the Bovaird property in 2015.
Beginning in the early 1990s, the museum was created by ‘Friends of Historic Bovaird House’ a dedicated group comprised entirely of volunteers who maintain and operate the museum three days a week.
Why not plan a visit to the ‘Historic Bovaird House’ sometime soon? We look forward to welcoming you!
