Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead is the birthplace and childhood home of one of Canada’s most eminent citizens. Adelaide Hunter Hoodless’s legacy is far-reaching. She is credited as a co-founder of the Women’s Institute, the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), the National Council of Women and the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON). She was also a powerful force behind the formation of three faculties of Household Science. She achieved national recognition in her twenty years of public life. She died in 1910, one day short of her 53rd birthday.
The homestead was built in 1830 by John Bray, a veteran of the War of 1812. Originally built as a simple frame cottage, the home was expanded over time. By c. 1875 it had been modified into its present form that was popular in the late 19th century. Of particular note is the central gothic revival (or neo-gothic) arch that sits predominantly at the centre of the homestead upper front facade. In 1852, David and Jane Hunter, Adelaide’s parents, purchased the property. The descendants of the Hunter family retained ownership of the homestead farm until 1906. Jane Hamilton lived on the homestead farm until 1888.
