Step back in time and experience the lifestyle of Canadian auto baron R.S. McLaughlin during the interwar years. The art, architecture, gardens, landscaping and original furnishings are all faithfully preserved and are enlivened by the stories of the lives and accomplishments of his remarkable family.

In 1989, Parkwood was officially designated a National Historic Site and R.S. McLaughlin was named a person of significance to Canadian heritage by Parks Canada. The dual designation of both Sam McLaughlin as an individual and Parkwood as a landmark make this site a rich and unique property and the source of tremendous pride in the community.
