Event details

The Clow family immigrated from Scotland and over three generations grew “Riverview” from its first house to a 200-acre commercial farm. A naturalist will share stories of the Clows and life on the farm and welcome you inside the 19th-century buildings for a peek into the past.

Two sessions will be offered:

  • Session 1: 10:30 a.m. to noon
  • Session 2: 1 to 2:30 p.m.
