Woodside National Historic Site

Built in 1853, it was for some years the boyhood home of William Lyon Mackenzie King, prime minister of Canada 1921-30 and 1935-48. The house has been restored and refurbished in the Victorian style popular in Mackenzie's time. There is an exhibition devoted to the life of this politician who was greatly influenced by his grandfather, the rebel leader William Lyon Mackenzie.
