Grove Cottage was home to Honourable Senator Robert Barry Dickey, one of Canada’s “Fathers of Confederation.”

The house has retained many original features including hand-hewn beams and sills, fireplaces, brass doorknobs and locks, hand-planed floors and folding shutters.

The beautiful grounds are a popular venue for events, wedding and graduation photos.
