This 8 acre site was established by Francis Moss, one of the first nurserymen in the district, and was last opened to the public in the 1870s. Today, the Gothic Revival homestead is approached via a Sugar Maple avenue, through a re-created Kentish cobnut platt. An oval Victorian styled garden features a traditional urned fountain. A gravel pathway leads into the original garden and specimen period trees have been placed in original positions re-creating the 19th Century gardenesque-style as Moss had arranged.
Neighbourhood bee-keeper and green thumb, Keith McCallum will be selling his delish honey and locally grown plants. Award-winning, internationally acclaimed ceramic artist, Neville French opens his studio all weekend on the Mossmont estate and will display and discuss his unique high fired porcelain and stoneware tableware that is wood-fired incorporating local clays, rocks and woodash in the glazes.
