Fairfields Heritage House

3080 Richmond Rd, Ottawa, Ontario

An impressive 19th century Gothic Revival farm house, Fairfields Heritage House represents the homestead and community building legacy of the Bell family. Originally built on 660 acres of farm land, the museum tells the epic story of almost 200 years of rich, local history and the people who so actively helped shape the evolution of the area.

Beautiful green lawns surround the house and are an invitation to spend leisure time at the site. With a gazebo, gardens, and statuesque trees the space is perfect for picnics, exploration, and family-friendly activities.

Come visit the museum, explore the grounds and chat with knowledgeable guides. Imagine yourself in the past as you try on our dress-up costumes and play some old-fashioned games. With guided tours, as well as programs and events for families, Fairfields Heritage House remains a hub of community activity.

Open Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm until Saturday, September 2nd, except Saturday, July 1st.

The museum will also be open on Fridays in August from 1 pm to 5 pm.

Times may vary for special events and/or programs. Be sure to check all listings for more details.
