The Billy Bishop Home & Museum was built in 1884 and is a beautiful Victorian house in the heart of Owen Sound. It is the boyhood home of Air Marshal William Avery “Billy” Bishop VC, CB, DSO & Bar, MC, DFC, ED.
Billy Bishop is Canada’s charismatic hero of the Great War (the first World War 1914 – 1918). An adventurous, mischievous, and restless spirit, Billy was driven to be the best in all he did.
Take a step back in time to explore the lives of the Bishop Family, and discover the story of one of Canada’s most important icons. The Museum also serves to remember the contributions of the many service men and women and to always remember our Veterans, especially locally.
