Heritage York is a registered charity comprised of volunteers responsible for the stewardship of the historic Lambton House. For 170 years it stood as a landmark in the village of Lambton Mills and was the centre of the community. It saw the birth of our country, named and owned* by a Father of Confederation, Sir William P. Howland. Having survived a disastrous fire in 1915 that destroyed virtually every building around it, the wrath of Hurricane Hazel and the loss of the low-level bridge in 1955, it was sold in 1988 for development of the adjacent apartment building. On a quiet weekend in 1989, the rear 1/3 of the building was demolished by the builder leaving a much smaller footprint - yet it survives today as a testament to the efforts of many.
