Woodside was the boyhood home of William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada's tenth and longest-serving prime minister. This site transports you to an 1891 middle-class family home in the community of Berlin (Kitchener today). The kitchen has a working Welcome National cookstove made by Moffat and two indoor pumps. In the pantry you will find assorted dishware, food and equipment including a raisin seeder, steamer and can opener.

A variety of period recipes are prepared in the historic kitchen on weekends by a costumed interpreter and volunteers. Find out about John King's Ginger Beer and Isabel King's Spiced Peaches during Thanksgiving. Take home a King family recipe during the Christmas season.
