Short history of Scotsdale Farm:
The farm was bequeathed to the Ontario Heritage Trust by Stewart and Violet Bennett in 1982. Bennett had developed Scotsdale into an internationally renowned breeding farm for his Arabian horses and shorthorn beef cattle.
The Bennetts also bequeathed $1,335,000 to the Georgetown hospital with a wish that the money be spent for elderly care.
