How to keep moisture out of a stone century home foundation

Marco Rulez | Posted in Green Building Techniques on

Hello, I live in Ontario Canada and have a stone foundation century home. I find that in the summer there is a lot of moisture in the basement. There is nothing leaking but I need a dehumidifier running to keep the moisture down

Any idea how I can permanently solve the problem ?

Thank you !
