Description:
This house located at 151 Tracy Street is a simple form of Greek Revival architecture with its low roof pitch, off-center entry and brick quoins. The house features a generous sized verandah with a cornice and three columns. A finial sits on the roof peak in the front gable. Note the addition at the back of the house. The building retains many of the features seen here including the verandah and window shutters. The enclosed entryway has been removed in recent years. According to assessment records, the house appears to have been built c. 1875 for George Garner, a local cooper, and his family.

In the winter and early spring of 1982-1983, Randall Speller, a colleague of Larry Pfaff from the Art Gallery of Ontario, took a series of black and white photographs of houses of architectural significance in St. Marys. Larry Pfaff and several local friends who shared this interest in architecture took some additional photographs in a subsequent summer. This photograph is one of this series.
