Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Tribute

Own a unique piece of world history and proudly help fund the Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation programs.

The Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation is offering for a $1000 donation, this professionally framed limited edition piece of history. This framed 13"x16" collage is limited to a series of just 750 and is the result of a collaborative effort involving contributors from the local community. There will be an open edition of 250 used for special presentation purposes.

This item of memorabilia includes an authentic slice of cedar shake taken from the siding of the Hen House once located on the Banting Homestead Heritage Park. The original Hen House, built in 1891 by Sir Frederick's father, William, was destroyed in a fire on August 31, 1916. The replacement Hen House, being beyond repair, was demolished in 2010. Also included is a photograph of Sir Frederick Banting, an inscribed facsimile of his signature and a photograph of the historic Hen House with the Farmhouse in the background. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany your edition.
