    • This handsome one and a half storey residence, with hipped rood, was built in 1890 by Herman Cole, co-owner of the former Watson Woollen Mill. Though not a large building, it displays a wealth of well-executed classical features. These include a porch with pedimented roof supported by grouped Doric columns and roof detail of denticulated frieze. The eaves brackets of the house roof and the sementally arched windows are Italianate features. Set in an attractive garden, with many mature trees and shrubs, this is a building of great charm and presence.1a
