Eldon House, built in 1834, is London, Ontarios oldest remaining house. This eleven-acre site encourages us to look back in time and imagine life as it was for the Harris family. Life at Eldon House in the 1830s and 40s must have resembled a Jane Austen novel. Scores of eligible young army officers from the local British garrison flocked to the many balls and parties that were thrown by Mrs. Harris, who naturally was looking for husband material for her daughters.
