Heritage home built 1788-1798 by Col. Robert Nelles UEL in Grimsby, Ontario. The oldest continuously inhabited home between Niagara-on-the-Lake and Kingston, Nelles Manor has housed four successive generations of Nelles descendants, and remains standing today as a testament to Robert’s wisdom and perseverance through an ambitious colonial beginning.

A hidden gem in the heritage and cultural landscape of Niagara.

Fun Facts

Nelles Manor Museum hosts tours, teas, commemorations of local historical events, ghost tours and more!

The Manor contains original wood works, fittings and many Nelles family items. I was lovely restored over 40 years from eight apartments to a family home, which was then donated to the community as a heritage house museum in 2016.
