This historic and beautiful Georgian style home was built in 1800 and was the residence of John McFarland and his family for 150 years. McFarland had built the home with his sons from bricks made in a kiln on the property. During the War of 1812 the home was used as a hospital for injured British and American soldiers, and a British canon was set up on its property to protect the river. The house was restored in 1959, using period pieces to recreate its original appearance. The gardens at McFarland House have also been fashioned after traditional 19th century gardens and have been meticulously designed to resemble a traditional door yard garden. Visitors will be taken back in time as guides in period costume take you through this stately home. Be sure to indulge in some scrumptious home baked treats or a lovely cup of tea at the McFarland Tea Garden. The spacious grounds surrounding this stately home are the perfect place to enjoy a picnic or a leisurely stroll on a sunny summer day. There is also a picnic pavilion located on the property that can accommodate groups of picnickers. The park is divided by a deep ravine and visitors can access the wooden bridge to cross it. Nature enthusiasts can access several nature trails from across the bridge. McFarland House is open to the public from May to September, for ticket information and hours please call 1-877-642-7275
