The Reeve History & Cultural Resource Center is a fully restored Victorian Italianate home originally built in 1872, and is home to the
Westfield Historical Society.
The house was the residence of the Stitt family (who owned the Westfield Hotel) until 1898, and later the home of the Reeve family, from 1906 to 2001. William Reeve served Westfield through a variety of local projects, including the establishment of the YMCA and the creation of Mindowaskin Park in 1918.
This Victorian house now serves the community as a historical resource center for Westfield, as well as an exhibit center for special events throughout the year. A future educational facility, which will also house the Westfield Historical Society archives, is in the funding stage and will provide for a museum and educational facility, allowing the community to learn more about Westfield’s rich historic legacy.
