A historic farmhouse that depicts life in rural Canada West and what life was like for a young Adelaide Hunter Hoodless living on this homestead in St. George, Ontario.

Adelaide’s public career began after tragedy struck. Her youngest son, John Harold, passed away at the age of 14 months. Blaming herself for the tragedy, Adelaide vowed to improve education for rural women.

The homestead was built in 1830 by John Bray, a veteran of the War of 1812. Originally built as a simple frame cottage, the home was expanded over time. By c. 1875 it had been modified into its present form  that was popular in the late 19th century.
