“I did very much enjoy the sights, the history and the introduction to architectural heritage. Mostly, Steve, I enjoyed your enthusiasm for good cycling within the city, and your natural, relaxed approach. It was fun being with you and capturing your spirit.”

Discover one of the finest examples of an intact historic home in Canada. Three generations of the McQuesten family lived at Whitehern from 1852 until 1968. Among the last generation were six children who never married. In 1959 the three surviving members of the family bequeathed the home to the City with all its original possessions. It contains elements from many time periods – Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian – dating up to 1939 when the Honourable Thomas McQuesten was Minister of Highways. Explore the heritage of Victorian ideas and possessions that influenced life at Whitehern on the eve of W.W. II.
Bike rack located behind City Hall, across the parking lot from Whitehern.
