Woodside National Historic Site : Michelin's recommendations

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 to reflect the period of King's residence in the 1890s. In a theatre located in the basement, an audiovisual presentation (14min) provides an introduction, and there is an excellent display on King's life and association with Woodside. The influence of his grandfather, the rebel leader William Lyon Mackenzie, is of particular note.
