Plaque Text

A superb example of a prosperous Upper Canada home, this elegant classical building was erected about 1819. Though its interior has been modified several times since, the façade remains essentially unaltered. In the first historic house restoration undertaken in the province, the structure was refurbished by the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario in 1940. Since 1982 its continued preservation has been entrusted to the Ontario Heritage Foundation.
