Lynde House Museum

Historic Background

Lynde House was built in 1811 by Jabez Lynde who was a United Empire Loyalist. A first home in Whitby with a history important to all of Canada. It was a pivotal stopover in its early days during the war of 1812 where Soldiers, First Nation's Peoples and Settlers fighting during this period could come gather provisions for the hard journey and return again to receive medical attention and rest before returning to their homes. Lynde House has been a family home, a tavern, a museum and it is now ready to welcome you on a journey through time.
