STEP BACK IN TIME AT THE MANSION HOUSE
A HISTORICAL LANDMARK WITH MODERN AMENITIES AND GREAT FOOD & DRINKS
The Mansion House is a historical building located in Canada, originally built in the early 1800s by William Hamilton Merritt as a home and store. In 1826, it was converted into a hotel and the main floor was expanded to include a dining room and office where Merritt and his partners conducted business.
In 1859, a fire caused extensive damage to the building, but it was rebuilt and renamed several times, including Central Hotel and Haughton’s Saloon, before finally being re-named Mansion House in 1868. Today, it is known as the oldest continually licensed bar in Canada.
Despite its historical significance, the Mansion House has undergone several renovations to keep up with the times. The most recent renovation took place during the Covid-19 pandemic with the goal of turning the building into a more professional and high-end establishment. The renovation has modernized the building and made it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
