Help Me Historians (Photo Dial Up warning)
Edited on Fri Dec-29-06 03:07 PM by Brundle_Fly
I just bought this house in Ontario, old Upper Canada in fact, as far as I can tell it was built by a James P. Johnston from Ogdensburg, NY, for a Vincent M. Moore MD. in 1880. The local news papers records of this time were ( as is always the way with these things) destroyed by fire.

I need help determining the style, it is not Queen Anne, and any information on the architect. Thanks in advance.

1. GORGEOUS!
I'm jealous!

Most towns have some sort of historical society. They usually have all the goods when it comes to old local architecture, past ownership, etc.

Your house looks prominent enough that there would be data at yours. I found a link here:

You should probably give them a call.

3. Are you certain that there are no surviving records at Library and Archives Canada?
You've probably checked already, but if not it might be worth it. www.collectionscanada.ca
