O’Keefe Ranch was founded in 1867 by Cornelius O’Keefe. His family lived on site for 110 years before it was opened as an historic ranch, meaning it still houses one of the most complete collections of one family’s stuff (from the Victorian and Edwardian eras) in all of the province. Today O’Keefe Ranch is operated by a non-profit society and is a registered charity. Come visit us during our open season from May to October – stroll along the boardwalk, visit our original buildings (set up as they were more than 100 years ago!), visit the Greenhow museum, and go say hello to our many farm animals.
