Immerse yourself in the beauty and history of this National Historic Site, through daily site experiences and a variety of special learning opportunities, and events that will engage your senses.

Gain a sense of what it must have been like for Canadian Autobaron Sam McLaughlin and his family – to live the life of luxury in glorious surroundings, and with a seamless lifestyle made possible by a large household staff.  Imagine the Jazz-age and Big Band influences in music, fashion, sporting life and garden parties, and of course automobiles.

Mansion & garden experiences bring you up close and personal, with extensive access to period interiors and breathtaking gardens, and with fascinating stories of public achievements and behind-the-scenes work of designers and domestic staff, that made a grand estate possible.

Enjoy summer lunch or afternoon tea as McLaughlin did, by the sparkling fountains in the magnificent 1935 art moderne Teahouse, or a winter interlude amid the orchids in the greenhouse Tearoom.  Dance the Charleston or play croquet at special events.
