Built in 1829 as the original home of the Merrick Thomas family, the Thomas House is furnished and presented as a pioneer home of the 1830 – 1840’s, with many original family items. The house is operated by the Society and is open during the summer months when Society volunteers act as guides. A brochure covering the history of the family and the house (with fascinating details of life in the early 1800s) is available to visitors. Be sure to ask how many people lived in the home!

An orb is seen in one fire place photo. Is it spirit or science?

Admission is free, but donations in any amount to help sustain the house are much appreciated. As an old and fragile structure, the Thomas House requires regular care and attention, provided by OHS volunteers, with costs of maintenance and regular renewal paid for from the Society’s limited resources.

The Thomas House was moved to its present location in  Lakeside Park in 1955 as a result of the efforts of Hazel Chisholm Mathews and the the Oakville Historical Society. It was originally west of the Sixteen Mile Creek on a site now occupied by St. Jude’s Cemetery and St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

Thomas House visiting hours are 1:30 to 4:00 P.M. as follows:

May and June Weekends
July and August Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday
