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.
