English: Roselawn National Historic Site of Canada is a two-storey limestone house in Kingston, Ontario, Canada that was once the centre of a grand estate, and still serves as a reminder of the days when wealthy Kingstonians erected large country homes outside the city limits. Built for David John Smith in 1841, between 1851-1868 it was the home of Sir Henry Smith Jr., who served as Solicitor General for Upper Canada, then Speaker of the House of the United Canadas. In 1970-4, it was renovated by Queen’s University for use as the University’s Centre for Continuing Education. In 1997 it was again renovated to serve as the Donald Gordon Conference Centre.
