Visiting Spruce Lane Farmhouse is like taking a step back in time. Beautifully restored, the Farmhouse offers visitors a glimpse into the life of a local fruit farmer at the turn of the century. While the house is fully furnished and decorated in the late Victorian style, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and volunteers bring history to life through a wide variety of demonstrations and hands-on activities at different times in the year. Original barns and a variety of animals in the farmyard means the adventure continues outside as well.
During the Hands-On Heritage summer programs visitors get to participate in interactive heritage skills such as spinning, jam making, weaving and typical Victorian games, not to mention helping to care for the various farmyard animals in the popular Farm Hand programs. Spruce Lane Farmhouse also hosts several special events throughout the year such as the lavishly decorated Victorian Christmas Festival, the sweet Maple Syrup Festival in March and visitor-favourite Ghost Walks in August. Check the events calendar for more information about family-friendly heritage programs.
