Banting Homestead - It's the Best Place for a Kid!
Museum on the Boyne
Alliston , Ontario


   On the outskirts of
Alliston, Ontario sits the
homestead where one of
Canada’s most famous sons was
born. Sir Frederick Banting,
the co-discoverer of insulin,
grew up on this typical
Simcoe County farm, located
on Lot 2, Concession 2 in
Essa Township.

   This Community Memories
exhibit reveals a more
personal side of the famous
doctor and the Banting family
than is found in most history
books. The exhibit takes
visitors on a tour of the
family farm, as seen through
the eyes of a child, and
features stories of children

working and playing on the
Banting Homestead.
