is the mandate at the Rutherford House to promote, educate and
interest our visitors in the history of Rutherford House and
Edmonton in 1915. We are assisted in attaining our objectives by the
Friends of Rutherford House Society, a charitable organization
dedicated to furthering the restoration and and operation of this
provincial historic site. The Friends offer various opportunities to
share in the Rutherford Story. Education programs are offered to
school children of all ages. Lunch and afternoon tea are served in
the Arbour Restaurant, open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:30 to
4:00 pm. The Whatnot Shop stocks beautiful Edwardian reproductions
from linens to books, jewellery and candy. Stop by the shop any day
during regular operating hours. The Friends of Rutherford House
Society also offer opportunities for you to host private events in
this stately home: from family milestones, weddings, and baby
showers to a distinct and memorable office or community celebration.
