Wolford Chapel, John Graves Simcoe's burial site, is owned by the people of Ontario?
The Chapel and its collection of antique furnishings and decorative arts were generously donated to the people of Ontario in 1966 by British publisher Sir Geoffrey Harmsworth. At the same time A. G. Le Marchant then the owner of the Simcoe Estate donated an easement to Ontario for a public right of way to the Chapel.
The Ontario Heritage Trust accepted title to the chapel in 1982 from the John Graves Simcoe Foundation which acquired the property in 1966. The John Graves Simcoe Foundation also provided funds for its long-term care.
