A little bit of history about

The Manor

Livingstone Manor was established as a private home in 1880, built by brothers in the linseed oil business. This grand home was enjoyed by the Livingstone family until it was sold in 1951 and ran as a funeral home for 15 years.

In 1966, the Manor was purchased by former Listowel Mayor, David Kilberg, and his wife, who revived the historical elegance and charm of the Manor once again.

It wasn't until 1988, when Livingstone Manor changed ownership with the plans to preserve its historical architecture and interior elements by functioning as a retirement residence. In 2009, Duke and Sue Kuhendiran purchased the residence and under their ownership and the care of their staff, it continues to run as an established seniors residence.

Livingstone Manor features locally produced Wallace brick, stone carvings from Scotland, marble work from Italy and was built by the same architect who designed Castle Kilbride in Baden, Ontario. The Manor boasts 12 foot ceilings with beautifully painted details by Hungarian artist Karl Muller, a grand entrance with a large, wooden staircase and various stained glass windows throughout.

It's truly a historical masterpiece found at the heart of our community here in Listowel, Ontario within the County of North Perth.
