The Hillcrest House is Sold !!

We are beginning the road to retirement and look forward to handing the home over to new caretakers August 24, 2017.  In its history our home has been owned by many community leaders.......a councillor built the house in 1882, a mayor brought up his family here and named it Hillcrest House and a president of the University of Waterloo owned it twice, yes, twice.  We continued the tradition in 2001, embracing its heritage and welcoming guests from around the world.
