Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead National Historic Site

The Homestead Museum is the birthplace and childhood home of Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, one of Canada's most eminent citizens. As the co-founder the Women's Institute, YWCA and the Victorian Order of Nurses Adelaide also introduced and advocated for Domestic Science school programming and helped establish three teacher training institutes. The Homestead is restored to reflect Adelaide's life prior to 1880 (c. 1875) when she left the homestead to attend Ladies' College in Brantford, ON and later to marry John Hoodless, the son of a prominent furniture manufacturer. We have set hours but are also open year round for guided tours by appointment and for special events and workshops as posted. You may also follow us on Facebook or Twitter at @addiehoodless
