was built by Constant Van Egmond and his wife Ann Johnston. This
Georgian manor is one of the oldest houses in Huron County, and served as the nucleus for the growth of the Village of Egmondville.
The Van Egmond family played a fundamental role in the opening of the Huron Tract, a one-million acre parcel of land owned by the Canada Company. Colonel Van Egmond was involved with the
Rebellion of 1837 in an attempt to bring responsible government to the area. He died untried in the Don jail, Toronto.
Today, the Van Egmond House is preserved to its original splendour to provide a glimpse of life in the mid-nineteenth century. The House is located in the Van Egmond Reserve overlooking the beautiful Bayfield River (corner of Kippen Road and Bayfield Road). The Van Egmond Foundation hosts the annual Spring Breakfast, Country Breakfast and Ciderfest.
