On Saturday afternoon – September 15, 2018, at 1:00 p.m., the Sarnia Heritage Committee will be celebrating the determination of a property owner to save yet another piece of Sarnia’s built heritage.
The City’s Heritage Committee will be unveiling its plaque which designates the House @ 191 Brock Street South as a Designated Heritage Site under the Ontario Heritage Act, at the request of the owners – Erin and Heather Callister. This designation recognizes the homeowners’ effort to help protect this historical site by refurbishing this home in keeping with the heritage characteristics.
This house, which was built in 1883, remains unaltered from its original construction and it retains its original character and design materials. Special attention was made to the detail seen in the decorative wood in the right gable end, the wood brackets under the roof of the right bay window, the brick label shaped voussoir head trim and the smaller façade gable with the door in it.
The building which is a two storey yellow brick Victorian Revival style house has a high gable roof with one large projecting gable on the right of the façade and one small gable offset to the left. The exterior wall material used is yellow brick laid in a stretcher bond with brick foundation that is fully below ground.
The integrity of this historic building lives on.
Please drop by Saturday to celebrate this event and show your support to preserve our built heritage.
