Lavery House
Point Aconi Road

In the 1920's, 30's and '40's local school teachers would board in the front bedrooms.

Architectural Comment

Victorian style house built in 1908. The house still contains the original fireplace and mantle. This house was built to replicate a house that had burnt. The original wrap around veranda still remains as well as the hardwood floors in the dining room and living room and the wood ceilings. There are original wood doors on the upstairs bedrooms. The new addition was added in a style that complements the older section of the house. A kitchen and bathroom were added as well as the addition of a foundation.

Contextual Comment

As was a common practice in the first half of the twentieth century, local school teachers used to board in this residence.
