A Grandfather's Gift by Jean Porter

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada, has become a special place to ARIDO life member, Jean Porter. When Glencairn Hall (built in 1832), was purchased by her and her husband in 2004, they knew it was an important part of Canada's history. This would be the largest renovation/design they had ever attempted. The great architectural features had to be rescued for this aging, grand lady.

Jean has chronicled the amazing lives and passions of the prominent owners in her book, A Grandfather's Gift.

If you love historical homes, powerful political figures, steamships, trains, brilliant business people, renovations, interior design, gardens, and secrets, then welcome to Glencairn Hall.
