Homer Watson House & Gallery
Homer Watson House & Gallery, built in 1835, is the homestead of Homer Watson, Canada’s first noted landscape artist (1855-1936). In 1980, the house and surrounding property were designated under the Ontario Heritage Act as being of architectural and historic significance. Today, the Gallery operates as a vibrant and active arts centre that encourages artistic expression through the museum and historical artwork, contemporary exhibitions, visual art programs for all ages and curriculum based school programs.
