Here she wrote 11of her 22 books and her poetry book.The home has been restored to 1917 and provides the backdrop for the story of her life and work in this part of Ontario.
Our other building is The Historic Leaskdale Church formerly St.Paul's Presbyterian Church where Reverend Ewan Macdonald was minister from 1910 to 1926. Maud came to live in Leaskdale as the bride of Ewan and here had her family.The church is our gathering hall for tours, displays and special events.
