Adelaide Hunter was born at the Homestead, near St. George, the youngest of 11 children. She married John Hoodless and lived in Hamilton with him and her 4 children.
Later, haunted by the death of her small son (from unsafe food), Adelaide began a campaign to give girls and women the knowledge they needed to safeguard their families. Her many achievements included persuading the Province of Ontario to introduce Home Economics in schools, and initiating training for teachers of domestic science.
Adelaide died on the eve of her 53rd birthday, 100 years ago this month. We mark this important occasion with a special event from 1 -3 p.m. on Saturday, February 27, 2010, which will feature a new exhibit on the theme of 'Commemoration', as well as cake and refreshments. Admission is $3 for Adults, $2 for WI members and Children aged 5 - 12 and $6 for families.
The Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead National Historic Site is located just north of Brantford, west of Hwy. 24 at 359 Blue Lake Road. For information, please call 519.448.1130 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
