This week marks the bicentennial of John Macdonald's birth, commemorated with a postage stamp and coin, both issued in his hometown of Kingston on his birthday, January 11, 2015. The city continues celebrating, this year, including at Bellevue House National Historic Site, Macdonald's home in 1848-49.
Few figures in history attain the larger-than-life stature which is his; a mind which filled a nascent nation with dreams of the continental empire it would become. -Wayne

The plaque is not on public display. It was hauled out from storage for me to see. However when Allison House is open to visitors, as it is in the summer, staff would no doubt oblige people who inquire about it.
