The town is in the Red-Control level under the new provincial COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
The historic buildings of Erchless Estate were once home to Oakville’s founding family but are now the setting for Oakville's community museum. Colonel William Chisholm, an enterprising merchant and shipbuilder, founded the town and built Erchless overlooking his new harbour and Lake Ontario.
Today, visitors can still enjoy that magnificent view and explore the beautiful buildings, grounds and gardens of Erchless. The Oakville Museum offers guided tours of the Chisholm family home, changing exhibitions, special events and programs that tell the fascinating stories of our town.
Now beautifully decorated for the holidays, take a stroll past Erchless Estate or book a tour online for a glimpse of Christmases past. Due to limited room capacity tours are offered for groups of up to six people from the same household. Only one person per group needs to register to attend.
Closed to the public until further notice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
