I've been there several times. Always fascinating look back at history, and a beautiful building on great grounds. Easy to get there from downtown. On a clear day, this is a MUST see!

A little tricky to find at first, and not really worth the visit. The garden is lovely but the house doesn't have enough to really get excited about compared to other heritage sites I've been to.

Craigflower Farm was a large Hudson Bay Agriculture farm in the 1850s. The site has alot of potential but isn't well interpreted nor the history of agriculture in the area in the early settlement time well interpreted. It has alot of potential.
