The oldest surviving pre-confederate First Nations mansion in Ontario, Chiefswood National Historic Site is the mid-19th century birthplace and childhood home of E. Pauline Johnson, celebrated Mohawk poetess. Built in 1856, the house was constructed with two front doors, which reference Chiefswood’s function as a meeting place between two cultures.
Chiefswood offers guided tours, changing seasonal exhibits and special events interpreting the history of Six Nations of the Grand River and is open Tuesday through Sunday, May to September.
To book a tour, contact Six Nations Tourism at 1-866-393-3001.
