The Sir John Johnson Manor House, important both historically and architecturally, is one of the oldest houses west of the Quebec border and it requires stabilization and restoration. In 2013 the Sir John Johnson Manor House Committee (SJJMHC) submitted a business plan to Parks Canada (PC) (the site owner) to carry out the desperately needed work. In 2015 PC commissioned an engineering study to confirm the project feasibility, and to provide a costing. In 2016 PC approved the project. The project cost is 1.4 million dollars. PC has committed five hundred thousand dollars to the project. The SJJMHC now has to raise nine hundred thousand dollars. When the project is finished the upstairs will have one suite and three bedrooms so people can come and stay in this beautiful historical home. Revenue generated will go to cover operating costs of the site. Income tax receipts will be provided for donations above $20.00.
