HISTORIC BEAVERBROOK HOUSE
Childhood home of William Maxwell Aitken – better known as Lord Beaverbrook.
Enter the beautiful 1877 Victorian style house. Enjoy the carefully restored architecture. Learn more about the boy who was once described as “an idle boy” to the man who came up with the slogan “Pots and Pans for Britain’s Planes.” Max was always a force to be dealt with.
This year features an “Encounter with Lord Beaverbrook”. You will have the opportunity to hear from him what his job description was during WWII and learn what major part he played in the Battle of Britain. Following your encounter, join Lord Beaverbrook for tea and casual conversation. Encounter experience happens on Sunday afternoons, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, starting July 3rd. Reservations required. Call 506 622 5572 to book, or for more information.
Regular tours give you the history of the House, as well as how this house also served as the Old Manse Library. Hear about the first Librarian in the area. She was ahead of her times. Definitely worth a visit.
