Laura Secord Homestead

Born in Great Barrington Massachusetts, Laura Ingersoll came to Upper Canada with her father in 1795 and settled in this area. About two years later she married James Secord, a United Empire Loyalist, and within seven years they had moved to this site from nearby St. Davids.

Mrs. Secord's house a simple frame building was restored in 1971 and remains as a memorial to this exceptional act of patriotism.
