Caetani Centre

The 125+ year-old Caetani Centre is a 6,000 sq. ft. designated heritage house, situated on 1.3 acres of land on lower East Hill in Vernon, BC. The facility is operated by the Caetani Cultural Centre Society as a registered not-for-profit organization and registered charitable organization. Now open to the public, the Caetani Centre is available for both guided and self-guided heritage tours. Visitors can learn about the fascinating Caetani history and story and see treasured family artifacts as well as Sveva Caetani’s heralded Recapitulation painting series, recently returned permanently to the Caetani Centre after 35 years from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
