About The Brown Homestead

Home to the oldest house in St. Catharines, The Brown Homestead is re-imagining historic sites as engines of progress and development. Visitors to our site can explore the John Brown House, containing the original stone house built in 1796, as well as a number of historic outbuildings including the Norton Cabin, home of Mohawk Chief Teyoninhokarawen (Major John Norton) built in 1817.

Though our adaptive-reuse restoration work is ongoing, we are open for tours by appointment and offer a full calendar of engaging events and programs throughout the year. Check out our website and mark your calendars with all the upcoming fun! Email to arrange a tour or to connect with us.

Please note that the John Brown House is undergoing continued restoration work and is currently not wheelchair accessible.
