Masion Fairbairn House

One of Wakefield’s oldest dwellings, Fairbairn House was the home of Scottish settler William Fairbairn and his wife, Jean Wanless.

The house, built by William in the 1860s, now sits proudly on the east bank of the Gatineau River, a short walk from the centre of Wakefield village and not far from William Fairbairn’s original farm location.
