  • Take a step back in time and enjoy touring the Harris family home. Learn more about the families who founded London, marvel at the artifacts and hear a haunted tale.

  • Love visiting this type of museum. It holds a treasure of real life from a bygone era. The library made me think that 'Jo' from Little Women would walk into the room at any moment.

  • This is my first time to write a review on google maps because the house is so decent and nostalgic that I was speechless when I first came in. The staff was friendly and asked if I had questions about the house once in a while. I was impressed and will not forget this place.
  • Went here for the full high tea experience! The food was absolutely delicious and the house tea blend was great, all for an amazing price. Not the same quality as more high end locations (like Niagara) but still tasty/ a good experience.
  • Magical. They sell lavender. A real 90s vibe, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • My students had a great time. Loved the ghost stories.
