Town of Orangeville, Province of Ontario                 

Take notice that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Orangeville intends to designate, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act the building and lands described as Part Lot 3, Con 3 WHS, municipally known as 330 Blind Line, in the Town of Orangeville, in the County of Dufferin, in the Province of Ontario.

Reasons for Proposed Designation

The house was built by Samuel Montgomery c. 1840.  It is a very early rare stone Georgian style house constructed from local rubblestone. The two-storey house has a gable roof pierced on the central south side by a brick chimney.  The soffit and fascia are wood and the gables have wood shingle siding with a small square window in the north gable.  The rubblestone has been given a mortar parge with incised lines to give the impression of dressed stone while the larger quoin stone blocks are semi-dressed. 

The reason for designation applies to all exterior elevations, facades, roof and trim, architectural detailing and construction materials.  These specifically include:

  • A rare stone building in Orangeville
  • All original stonework
  • Original gable window
  • A good example of early vernacular Georgian residence style
  • A testament to the pioneering first families
  • Use of local materials
