The Mackenzie King Estate was created by William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada’s 10th and longest-serving prime minister. For more than four decades, Mackenzie King spent most of his summers at the Estate. He gradually expanded and beautified the grounds, and eventually came to own 231 hectares (2.31 square kilometres) of land. In 2013, the cottages were restored, and now feature interactive exhibits that take visitors back in time to King’s era.The Mackenzie King Estate is a special place where you can spend the entire day enjoying nature. From the moment you enter the Estate, you will feel as though you have been taken back to the early 1900s. Enjoy a quiet walk on the wooded paths, or listen to the story of the Estate as told by one of our guide-interpreters.
