1610 Concession 13, Townsend, Ontario.

This land was originally owned by Scottish novelist, John Galt, and was used to relocate the poor of Britain and Europe after the Napoleonic War and growing industrialism. John Edmondson, from Ireland, bought the land in 1867, and built this house circa 1880. It is a vernacular version of the Italianate style.
