Bentley/McLane Residence

This 1850s home houses painted stencil work in the main parlour. The artwork was discovered by the current owners under several layers of wallpaper. Wild Caraway, a restaurant nearby, has very similar painted surfaces.

Densmore Summer Residence

The Densmore's summer home, which features historical decoratively painted surfaces, was built by an unknown Loyalist man. The foundation is dated 1750 but it is believed that the remainder of the home was constructed sometime in the 1830s. The house features a hallway dressed with faux stone work and marbleization. Unfortunately, Mrs. Densmore wallpapered over the artwork in 1978.

Carrigan Residence

This 19th century 5 bedroom home features 4 original mantels which host the decorative artwork of an unknown itinerant painter. The current owner, Owen Carrigan, moved in the house in 1979. He purchased the home from a firm that had divided the home in order to house multiple students that attended the nearby university. Much work was needed to restore the house to its original state.

Niven Residence

This home was built in 1919 by a French architect Levesque. Levesque may have been inspired by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright as the structure of the home resembles Wright's "prairie houses" which characteristically feature extended low buildings with shallow, sloping roofs, clean sky lines, suppressed chimneys, and large overhangs.
