This building belonged to the English Reid family since the mid-nineteenth century. Due to its owners, this farm was also known as «Quinta dos Ingleses» or «Quinta de Vilar das Oliveiras». Besides the magnificent house, this property also includes an astonishing garden which preserves many of the original characteristics. In 1922, the family Reid descendants sold their property to «Sociedade Almeida Miranda & Companhia» which then sold it again to the Municipality of Porto. The Municipal Services of Water and Sanitation of Porto are installed in this building since 1930’s. Some of the old fountains of the city can also be found in this property (Source: Jorge Ricardo Pinto (2011), Bonfim - Território de Memórias e Destinos).
