Fall at Ruthven Park
Now is the time to visit this
unique National Historic Site.
A 1,500-Acre Country Estate
Today the site is owned by The Lower Grand River Land Trust Inc., a non-government, not-for-profit volunteer-based organization. Our purpose is to conserve the cultural and natural landscapes for the enjoyment of our visitors. The mansion overlooks the Canadian Heritage Grand River which played a significant role in the early history of the area and development of the Ruthven Park National Historic Site. An example would be the former industrial town of Indiana which was established in the mid-nineteenth century and is where David Thompson built his businesses and initially lived. A significant portion of Ruthven Park is also part of the North Cayuga Slough Forest, a provincially significant Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) as well as an Environmentally Sensitive Area.
Ruthven Park National Historic Site offers a beautiful Coach House for Rental for your special event, wedding or Social & Business Functions. Enjoy the beauty of the grounds they have been used for many movies and film shoots.
