Helen Gibson House

Local quarryman and builder, W.F. Gibson, built the first two cement block homes in Grimsby at 14 and 16 Robinson Street South
in 1912.   In 1921, Mr. Gibson completely rebuilt 14 Robinson Street South.
The building was reconstructed in the classical Georgian style with its long sharply pitched roof, internal chimney, symetrical facade and centre hall layout.  Plaster and stucco were then applied to the cement block. Both of these homes remain as private residences.

Hours of Operation
