Craigdarroch Military Hospital

Craigdarroch Castle was home to veterans of the Great War for only sixteen months - from September, 1919 to December, 1920. Hundreds of injured and sick patriots were treated here, and some of them died within its walls. The Castle and its surviving military hospital-era building fabric provide tangible evidence of the sacrifice made by Canada’s military men and women during WWI. This evidence also reveals the response of a grateful nation. It was a response that grew into the health and welfare system that all Canadians benefit from today.
