The Livingston family would look no further than their gardens surrounding Castle Kilbride to make delicious food. Explore the grounds of the Castle to find small informational plaques and receive recipes that correspond to places and plants around the Livingston’s property. Not only do participants receive free recipes, if they complete the challenge, they receive a discount to the museum to visit the museum's special exhibit "Whisked Up in Wilmot".



Castle Kilbride National Historic Site

Castle Kilbride stands as a monument to our heritage and traditions, and the commitment that the people of Wilmot Township have made to preserve their heritage.

Castle Kilbride is a grand Victorian home that was built in 1877, for James Livingston, flax industrialist, politician and entrepreneur. It was named Castle Kilbride after Livingston's birthplace in East Kilbride, Scotland. The house was designed in the Italianate style of architecture and capped with a belvedere lookout. The beautiful exterior, however, is overshadowed by its outstanding interior décor. The magnificent Trompe l'oeil ceiling and wall murals provide an optical illusion of depth. Trompe l'oeil is a French term meaning “tricks of the eye.”
