The Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead Foundation operates as a not for profit organization and our goal is to honour Sir Andrew Macphail’s contribution to our heritage by preserving his birthplace as an educational facility and interpretive centre.

Step back in time and enjoy the tranquil surroundings of a bygone era. Take a guided tour with an interpreter to learn more about the artifacts on display in the 1850’s gable house, and the many unique pieces of our heritage found on the property, including the original cracked bell from the Valleyfield church and the entrance pillars from the engineering building at McGill University, that burned to the ground in 1907. Also stroll through the grounds and enjoy the vegetable garden, woods and nursery.

The Homestead is open to the public July 1st – Sept 18th or by appointment by emailing with a request.

Notes: No tours available while lunch is being served.

You may book an event at Macphail’s. We are happy to host special occasions including weddings and receptions. Please email us with your request.

Garden & grounds are often open from 9 am -5 pm, however main gates are closed at 5pm – please park outside the gates if you plan to hike the woods after 5pm (we don’t want to lock you in!)

Macphail Woods –Most of the homestead’s 57 hectares (140 acres) are wooded and include a pond, several streams and walking trails. The Macphail Homestead is honoured to include the Macphail Wood Ecological Forestry Project. This  is designed for research and demonstration for the restoration of native forests on PEI. The nature centre has much to offer visiting guests, and there are youth camps offered throughout the summer. This beautiful setting is well worth coming for a walk in. For more information visit
