Moore Farm

In 2017, the Moore Farm was part of the NCC’s Confederation Pavilions in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary as the Ecology and Urban Agriculture Pavilion.

About the Moore Farm

The Moore Farm stable was built in phases, and completed in 1910. Featuring ornamental gables and a central cupola, the H-shaped building—recently restored by the NCC—is a rare example of the lavish Queen Anne Revival style as it was applied to agricultural buildings.

Pioneers cleared the land for farming here in the early 19th century. In the 1950s, the farm became an equestrian centre. In 1973, Virginia Parker-Moore bequeathed the 12-hectare (30-acre) estate to the NCC. It was designated a Government of Canada Recognized Federal Heritage Building in 1991.
