The Adair Family

The Adair Place was named in honour of the Adair family whose land was purchased to build the seniors residence. John Adair (1804-1888) and Eliza (Hannah) Adair (1807-1883) settled in Tamworth in the 1800's and raised 11 children. Their century home was still in use until recently, by descendents of the Adair family and is down the lane behind the Adair Place Seniors Residence.
