Reford Gardens, (Quebec, Canada). Estevan Lodge

The visit of the Gardens is punctuated by the discovery of Estevan Lodge, a 37-room historic house that was the summer home of Elsie Reford. Estevan Lodge was built in 1887 for Sir George Stephen. In 1926, Elsie Reford enlarged the house to the designs of Montreal architect, Galt Durnford. The second storey of the house was modified to create private quarters for Elsie and Robert Wilson Reford, and to accommodate her sewing room and his dark room. Known for many years as the Villa Reford, the house was re-baptised Estevan Lodge after its restoration in 2003. Estevan Lodge hosts temporary exhibitions every summer, exploring botanical art, the history of the gardens, the beauty of plants or featuring the work of one or more artists.
