Final Views In And Out

Laurier House is a marvel to visit, seeing the personal residence of the Lauriers and Mackenzie King, their artifacts and mementos. You feel their presence here.


Leaving the place, I noticed more snow on the ground than when I'd arrived.

  4. I also feel as if the people are still in the room or I can place them in the room when so many personal items are on display. You made this tour realistic.

  5. I especially like the beautiful wood in this house. It adds elegance to the mansion.

  6. @Nancy: it's colder today!

    @Tomas: at least these two. Until 24 Sussex Drive came into the government's possession, a prime minister's residence in town was where ever suited them.

    @Marianne: we shall see if it gets that cold this winter.

    @Jan: it certainly is!

    @Red: it was enjoyable to do so.

    @Lowell: it really does!

    @Sharon: it is, yes.

    @Janis: so do I.

  17. It's nice when there's a real sense of the occupants. Sometimes it just feels like another empty building.
