Applewood-James Shaver Woodsworth Homestead Foundation



The building, moved in 1980 to avoid demolition, serves as an example of the architecture of 19th century farmhouses in this region.


The interior of the homestead has been restored and furnished in the Victorian period of 1870-1890 (e.g. furniture and personal effects such as desks, china dolls, roll top desks, kitchen appliances).

Public Programming:


A tour of the main floor rooms and basement, with a slide presentation of the big move and restoration of the homestead.

Tours can also be tailored to a group’s interest, (i.e. J.S. Woodsworth, historic buildings, pioneer life, the Shaver Family, etc.).

Visitors may drop in and staff are available to answer questions.
