Canterbury Cottage

This historic home was built in 1852 by Charles Nelles  and was deeded to his half-sister Catherine. This Regency cottage with its low hip roof and large windows has a cozy appearance that hides its spacious, elegant interior. Two additions have been made to the rear of this home. The bent Catalpa tree in front of the house was once said to be a marker on an early Indian trail, leading south to flint beds in Wainfleet.

Hours of Operation

Private Residence, not open to the public.

Grimsby Historical Society and archives located at the Carnegie Building, available for visit or phone on Monday, Wednesday, Friday    8:30 am - 12 noon.  And by appointment.
