Welcome to Eldon House

Virtually unchanged since the nineteenth century, Eldon House is London’s oldest residence and contains family heirlooms, furnishings and priceless treasures of the Harris Family. Eldon House is an historic site in downtown London that has been preserved and maintained since 1960 when it was donated to the City of London. It was home to four generations of the Harris family, and is an excellent example of Georgian and Regency architectural styles. Its gardens are considered among the most beautiful in the city.


Board of Directors

Many thanks for your interest in Eldon House – London’s oldest home. As of January 1, 2013 Eldon House is stewarded and managed by an Eldon House Municipal Service Board, on behalf of the City of London.

Our small appointed Board of Directors works closely with staff at Eldon House to create and promote an exciting range of programs and activities to showcase the museum’s potential as a historic site, a London landmark and an important collection of London, Canada’s history.

Our board meets on the second Thursday of the month at 4:30 pm, and unless indicated, all meetings held are open to the public at the Eldon House Interpretive Centre. Meeting minutes, agendas and supporting information can be accessed using the links below.
