Discover Belleville’s treasure, Glanmore National Historic Site. Built in 1882-1883 for wealthy banker J.P.C. Phillips (1842-1912) and his wife Harriet Dougall Phillips (1839-1915) this grand historic house was designated as a National Historic Site in recognition of its exceptional 2nd Empire Architecture.
The elaborate interior features beautiful hand-painted ceilings and ornate woodwork. Many of Glanmore’s rooms have been restored to the 1890s. They feature period room displays containing some original furnishings as well as beautiful objects from the Couldery Collection.
The museum cares for an extensive collection of antique furniture, paintings and ceramics. Local history is highlighted in Glanmore’s lower level, and includes the Early Homestead exhibit and Maid of All Work: Domestic Service at Glanmore.
The Museum is open to the public six days a week and offers a wide variety of programs and activities for schools and the general public.
