A Visit to Woodside National Historic Site

Woodside National Historic Site is the childhood home of former Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King. King resided there from 1886 to 1893. The house was built in 1853 and has been restored to reflect the time when Mackenzie King was there and will be all decked out for the holiday season. In our 100th anniversary research we have learned that Mackenzie King was a frequent guest of the club back in 1922 and delivered an address on August 4, 1925 to a Rotary and Kiwanis combined meeting.

We have arranged for an after-hours, private viewing.   We can each explore the site at our own pace through self-guided tours but guides will be stationed throughout the house to answer any questions about the site.  There is no fee for this family friendly event but registration is required to help with planning.  Guests can be noted in the comment box on the registration page.  Deadline for registration is Monday, November 28.  Parking is limited and car-pooling is recommended.
