COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS) - Effective March 17, Rutherford House is closed to the public at this time. The safety of Albertans is our top priority. Please read our full statement below.
From 1912 to 1938, the Rutherford family hosted an annual Founder’s Day celebration. Mr. Rutherford and the University of Alberta graduating students would plant a tree on campus and then return to the family home for a luncheon.
