Artist's Description

Makenzie King discovered Kingsmere in 1901 while on a cycling trip through the Gatineau Hills. He fell in love with the area and in September 1902 he arranged to purchase a lot by the lake, where, in 1903, he built a four-room cabin he called Kingswood. It grew over the years into an estate of some 240 acres where King would walk his guests – among whom were the Duke of Windsor and Winston Churchill – over miles of nature trails and where from May to October he conducted much of the nation’s business. It included 5 country homes, barns, garages, gardens and the Moorside ruins, a peculiar collection of materials from old Ottawa buildings. King died at his beloved estate 22 July 1950. He bequeathed the estate to “the Government of Canada … in trust for the citizens of Canada.” “The Farm” is the residence of the Speaker of the House of Commons.
