Dundurn Castle: Discover this 40-room Italianate-style villa built in the 1830s on the former site of Burlington Heights; a fortified supply depot established by the British in 1813. Once home to Sir Allan Napier MacNab, railway magnate, lawyer and Premier of the United Canadas (1854-1856) and his family, today Dundurn Castle tells the story of the family who lived above stairs and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Corn-wall is the museum’s Royal Patron and the great, great, great granddaughter of Sir Allan MacNab. Experience unique and engaging cooking, craft and gardening workshops or custom-design your own for groups of 15 or more.
