Brock Street home designated heritage siteSeptember 14, 2018 12:26pm
Another piece of Sarnia’s history is being preserved, with the unveiling of a heritage designation plaque at a home at 191 Brock St. S this weekend.
The two-storey yellow brick home was built in 1883 and remains unaltered from its original construction.
Sarnia Heritage Committee Secretary Max Williams said it’s a unique piece of the city’s history.
“This particular area here, everything south of Wellington Street, was part of the old farmland in the former City of Sarnia which was eventually amalgamated into the city,” said Williams. “It’s one of the original buildings that was there and remains unaltered. It’s also a Victorian-style Revival home which is unique to this area.”
Williams said owners Erin and Heather Callister have done a great job in refurbishing the home while maintaining the heritage features.
He said special attention was made to the detail 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 facade gable with the door in it.
The dedication ceremony is being held at 1 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
