Ruthven Park National Historic Site

En Français >

The Ruthven Park National Historic Site consists of one of Canada’s finest Greek Revival mansions, which sits on 1,478 acres of property along the Grand River in southwestern Ontario.

ERA was retained as the heritage architectural consultant on a conservation management plan team restoring Ruthven Park. We provided detailed assessments and historical studies of the buildings and coordinated archival, archaeological, curatorial, and museological services. ERA oversaw all six phases of  restoration over seven years, including conserving and restoring masonry, metal, wood, and windows, as well as structural underpinning and roof repairs and the restoration of the east entrance porch.
