News from the Margaret Laurence Home


By Brenda Ferguson


The Margaret Laurence Home is now open for the season and we have already had many Canadian visitors as well as some from as far away as New York, Florida and Finland.

  The home is open daily throughout the summer from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. To keep the house going we do charge a small admission fee.   Group tours are available but please phone to make arrangements.   Like us on Facebook to keep up to date on special events.

Margaret Laurence has been honoured with the designation as a person of National Historic Significance and there will be a commemorative plaque placed on the grounds by Parks Canada in August.  Please mark your calendar for Aug. 10 so you don’t miss this special event.   

Please stop by for a visit and take a tour of this beautiful old home, built in 1895.  Our gift shop has a variety of souvenirs as well as a selection of books by Margaret Laurence and a few local authors.  We look forward to seeing you!
