Re: Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead
359 Blue Lake Road, PO Box 209
St. George, Ontario N0E 1N0

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of The Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada on July 19, 2021, the decision was made not to sell the Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead, but to keep it. The change in their decision was the result of the tremendous response and outpouring of offers for help and support from the Community, WI members, WI Branches and Brant County.
The FWIC/WI Canada has operated the Homestead for more than 60 years and would like to continue to do so into the future. They value the contributions made by Adelaide Hoodless to the community at large and to the Women’s Institute movement. In order to have the Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead Historic Site and Museum remain open to the public will require the commitment and financial support from the Community, WI members and Brant County. With the increasing costs of operations, FWIC/WI Canada cannot do it alone.
Following in the footsteps of Adelaide Hunter Hoodless, the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada is a national network for women and families to promote leadership and personal development opportunities through education, advocacy and fellowship.
