Historic Bovaird House
Brampton's only historic residence open to the public. Come and experience yesterday.... today.
Historic Bovaird House is an exceptional example of a mid-19th century Ontario farmhouse, built in the “Georgian” style. The hallmark of Georgian architecture is symmetry and proportion; these characteristics are evident on both the exterior and interior of the home, where windows, fireplaces, and rooms are evenly matched to create a visual balance pleasing to the eye.
In 200 years, the Bovaird House property has seen many changes. From acres of rural farmland to massive urban sprawl, Brampton has grown from a village to a thriving city.
Historic Bovaird House and Carriage House Gift Shop are open yearly from mid-February to mid-December
Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday
noon to 4:00 pm.
Free tours of Historic Bovaird House are conducted during operating hours: Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. Our knowledgeable volunteers can provide guided tours of the entire premises, answering your questions, and interpreting the many features throughout.
Members of the volunteer committee at Historic Bovaird House have recently published an informative, full-color booklet about the House. This booklet contains all information known about Bovaird House – past and present – including: its owners, history, and many furnishings and artifacts found therein. Copies are available for $15 in the Carriage House Gift Shoppe, with all proceeds going toward Historic Bovaird House.
