- Item Type
- This storey and a half stone limestone house was built sometime in the 1860s. The house was first owned by James Elliott, it overlooked his quarry and kiln. Elliott was known for his work on the St. Marys Opera House which was constructed with stone from his quarry and lime from his kiln. In addition, Elliott was responsible for the brick and stonework on the North Ward Collegiate building.
The house has a saddleback style roof with a small central gable on the front façade. Large cut stone lintels are placed above the windows and all four corners of the house are quoined. The front of the home has a raised stoop which has since been altered, but the house retains many of its original features.
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.
