A Look Back — the Historic Stewart Farm

9 Feb

Blog Post #292

One of my favourite place to visit is the Historic Stewart Farm. Located in the heart of South Surrey, the farm belonged to an early pioneer family, the Stewarts, from 1880 to 1994. Today the heritage site with its farmhouse, grounds and outbuildings is a vibrant tourist destination. The farm depicts life of Surrey long past complete with heritage activities, and events such as their annual Strawberry tea. In fact, at the end of this month I will be attending a book club at the farm — we will be discussing Jane Austen’s Emma, and enjoying tea and treats in the farmhouse.

The sprawling grounds are perfect for a lovely walk, with beautiful flowers, plants and lots of scenic views.

If you haven’t been to this historic site — you should go. Find out about all the events and programs on the City of Surrey website.
