Earnscliffe is a National Historic Site of Canada, as well as the residence of the British High Commissioner. Built between 1855 and 1857, it was also the home of our first Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald, for many years up to his death. It was a popular spot for Doors Open, and I'm finishing up the series from here with three days of posts.
The beautiful Victorian manor is built of local limestone, and stands on Sussex Drive overlooking the Ottawa River.
The gardens are particularly well kept.
