Plaque Text

Exuberant ceiling paintings, stained glass, richly decorated fireplaces and woodwork make the interior of Annandale an excellent illustration of the Aesthetic Movement. This international movement reacted against the growing use of mass-produced decorative items in house design, and instead promoted a revival of craftsmanship. Finished in 1887, Annandale reflects the taste and aspirations of E.D. Tillson, an important entrepreneur and first mayor of Tillsonburg. The exterior shows the influence of standardized house designs on Canadian architecture in the 19th century.
