Description:
This building is located on the southwest corner of Queen and Water Street in downtown St. Marys. Note part of the Great Star Flour Mill structure and sign visible behind the building and the Opera House to the south. The building was constructed of local limestone in 1863 for William V. Hutton. Hutton was an early mayor of St. Marys and was responsible for the construction of several downtown blocks in St. Marys. The building provides examples of Italianate features including the voussoir windows on the ground level and the flat arch headers with projecting keystones above the upper windows. 6 Water Street South is a designated heritage building.

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 buildings 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.
