    Hastings Belmont House 
    • Bellmont House was built in 1861 by William Hastings, the first justice of the Peace in Crosshill. The house is an excellent example of a Gothic stone structure. It has been well maintained in its original state except for the closed in transom and sidelights of the front entrance.

      Of particular note are the intricately carved stone quoins and the carved stone head above the Gothic window, said to be the likeness of William Hastings himself. Designated September 17, 1985.
