The Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead Foundation operates as a not for profit organization. Our goal is to  honour Sir Andrew Macphail’s contribution to our heritage by preserving his birthplace as an educational facility and interpretive centre.

Step back in time and enjoy the tranquil surroundings of a by-gone era. Take a guided tour with our historical interpreter to learn more about the artefacts on display and the many unique pieces of our heritage found on the property, including the original cracked bell from the Valleyfield church and the entrance pillars from the engineering building at McGill University, that burned to the ground in 1907.

Current Board of Directors

Harry Baglole, President; Peter Metaxas, Vice-president;  Karen Murchison, Treasurer; Laura VonZittwitz, Director; Dr. John Demarsh, Director; Doreen Huestis, Director and Beth Hoar, Director.

Site Director: Mary MacQueen Elliott 

The Foundation acknowledges the financial support from the Government of Prince Edward Island, as well as the most generous support of Vesey’s Seeds Ltd, towards the Homestead Garden Project. Thanks, also, go to the Community Museums Association and the Canadian Museums Association for their ongoing support.

The Homestead accepts cash only – no credit or debit cards. Thank you.
