With the woods ablaze in autumn colour and the house decorated with harvest fruits, vegetables and gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces, the Victorian Thanksgiving celebrations at Woodside National Historic Site, the childhood home of William Lyon Mackenzie King, will make a wonderful addition to your own enjoyment of the holiday. Kick up your heels in the bright fallen leaves in the hardwood forest that surrounds the King’s home then come inside for a self-guided tour to see original artifacts from the family of Canada’s 10th and longest serving prime minister and to hear stories of his boyhood years at Woodside.

The site grounds are open all year. Evenings, weekends are ideal for a walk or picnic. The home is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday to Sunday from the beginning of October to December 23, 2017. Parking is available on site and the picnic pavilion is available for rent all year.
