53 South Bartlett Street, Vine Cottage
Imagine when this part of the city near Macdonnell Street and Princess was farmland! In 1838 Smith Barlett sold part of this farm on Farm Lot 22 to George Smith, who built circa 1840 a house called “Vine Cottage”. The one and a half storey house has a hipped roof verandah on three sides of the building, and also scalloped bargeboard along the edges of the eaves, eave returns and front gable. Part of the Williamsville neighbourhood, it has had a longstanding municipal designation (Part IV).
