Dressmaker's Cottage

This small stone cottage is believed to have been built for the Nelles family seamstress by a stone mason who used the stone left over from the building of Nelles Manor (1798). A resident seamstress was a necessity since manufactured garments were not available in pioneer Upper Canada. It is believed to date from about 1812. The gingerbread trim is a late 19th century addition.
