    Erland Lee Home Historic Site  Map and other info about the historic site.


    The Erland Lee (Museum) Home National Historic Site of Canada is set in a rural landscape in the town of Stoney Creek, Ontario. It is an ornamented Gothic Revival style farmhouse in which the constitution of the highly successful Women’s Institute was written. One-and-a-half-storeys high, with board and batten siding and distinctive gingerbread trim, the home is situated amongst lawns and gardens. Official recognition refers to the building on its legal lot.


    The Erland Lee (Museum) Home was designated a national historic site of Canada in 2002 because:
    - it is the site of the drafting of the constitution of the first Women’s Institute and the home of the organizations’ co-founders and leaders, Janet and Erland Lee;
    - it is widely recognized and valued as the birthplace of an important national and international movement for rural and farm women;
    - it is a well-preserved and interpreted home that speaks to the legacy of the Stoney Creek Women’s Institute.

Pillage the Village--Historic Merchants Xmas gathering

Unfortunately our last PILLAGE THE VILLAGE had to be cancelled as many had conflicting events, and unfortunate things like work.  We hope to reschedule with OUT OF THE PAST  for another day.  This month we will be heading to:

Historic Merchants Christmas Gathering at the Royal Botanical Gardens

come out for out next shopping event for november, join many other members of the clockwork hammer at this event, at a local shop to follow. "we have been informed that if you show up in steampunk or victorian or 1812 attire" you will get free admission on that date to the show, and the RBG

Imagine yourself transported back in time to the early 19th century, when the local Christmas
Market was one of the social and shopping highlights of the year. Wander the aisles filled with
top quality merchandise -- al
l of which dates from between the years 1700 and 1919. Stop
and chat at one of the colourful stalls, staffed by a merchant dressed in period clothing. Listen
to the cheerful calls of the vendors who hawk their merchandise in period style. Feel the excitement and charm of Christmas in Upper Canada some 200 years ago.
There's nothing like it!
Whether you're looking for a treasure, a bargain, or a gift for that impossible to buy for person
on your list, you won't go wrong at the Historic Merchants' Christmas Gathering!

here is the website if you would like to take a look


hope to see all at this event
