History comes alive when you visit two of Brampton’s prominent historic homes where visitors can enjoy a glimpse of local pioneer life as it was in the mid 19th century.

William and Mossie Bovaird, wanting to ensure the preservation of a reminder of our pioneer past, donated the house to the City of Brampton in 1985.  The c1852 Historic Bovaird House, a classic five bay Georgian-style farmhouse sits in a two acre park-like setting along with the c1845 Pendergast Log House.  The early log building was donated by a local developer who relocated  the significant heritage building to the Bovaird property in 2016.

Beginning in the early nineties, the museum was a created by ‘Friends of Historic Bovaird House’ a dedicated group comprised entirely of volunteers who maintain and operate the museum three days a week.

Why not plan a visit to the ‘Historic Bovaird House’ sometime soon ... we look forward to welcoming you.
