The History of The Elliot House
The one and half story historic farmhouse was built in 1860 using Credit Valley stone, by an immigrant from Scotland, Adam Elliot when he and his family first settled in Peel. Elliot became notable in history when he served on the Grand Jury in 1827 and later after his son built the first reaping machine in Canada. In 1886 John Elliot, the son of Adam, sold their family home and for more than 90 years the Elliot House was home to many different owners. In 1981 the property received it’s historical designation.
The Elliot House Today
Today the Elliot House is home to all of our Culinary adventures. We use many of the original rooms for private dining spaces, with our West Room being the only extension to the space. Inside the Limestone walls, you’ll find our event rooms, our restaurant, recreational cooking classes and even a culinary school which we’ve tucked into an additional kitchen we call “the learning kitchen”. These historic old walls have their share of stories to tell. Join us for dinner and experience the history.
