Leave the 21st century behind as you enter the world of the 1840s at the elegant Matheson House, home of the award-winning Perth Museum. This popular tourist attraction, located downtown at 11 Gore Street East, is a National Historic Site.
The stone dwelling was built in 1840 for the Honourable Roderick Matheson, wealthy merchant and a senator in Canada’s first parliament after Confederation. The four period rooms – parlour, dining room, drawing room and a warm and welcoming kitchen – have been carefully restored and furnished to reflect the lifestyle of the Matheson family who owned the house for 90 years.
