What to see

Annandale House 
Nationally designated for its magnificent interior, Annandale House serves as a monument to the Victorian style of design known as the Aesthetic Art Movement. Popularized by Oscar Wilde, this movement encouraged the use of colour and decorative detailling in all areas of the home. From extravagant, hand-painted ceilings and elaborate inlaid floors to ornate mantles, hinges and stained glass, Annandale truly combines the best of what the Aesthetes professed. Built in the 1880s by E.D. Tillson, first mayor of Tillsonburg, Annandale National Historic Site is a visual experience you won't soon forget.
