The Stanwood Homestead Museum is open daily, 10 am to 4 pm, free of charge, during the summer months until the end of September. The Museum is also open by appointment dependent on the availability of volunteers. The Museum stands as a testament and memorial to the remarkable life of Cordelia J. Stanwood. Cordelia was a romantic, mysterious and inspirational woman.
Cordie was raised as a Victorian lady. She had a prestigious family heritage going back nine centuries, and was the daughter of a daring, young Sea Captain and a prosperous merchant's daughter from Cape Breton. Cordie defined her own role in life by not marrying and by dedicating the last fifty years of her 93-year life to the woodlands of her childhood. In the process, Cordie established herself as a highly respected Ornithologist and Wildlife Photographer
