216 Thomas Street, St. Marys


Address: 216 Thomas Street St. Marys, ON

This home was designed and built circa 1866 by Robert Barbour (see notes for 210 Thomas Street) and the house remains as a shining example of small scale stone construction. Through the next two decades, Barbour became the most prominent and innovative master builder in the St. Marys area. The one and a half storey house at 216 Thomas Street has a renovated room which appeared to have been a summer kitchen with an attic bedroom above. The roof style is hipped with a ridgeboard running north/south complete with a large, centred cross gable running back to the ridgeboard on the east façade. The walls are limestone rubble, rough cut, regular coursed with a quarry faced finish. The windows are double hung, six over six mullion style, wood framed with the gable windows being single pane.
