Goodman Cottage

The Goodman Cottage was built in 1914 by Carl Goodman, its first owner, who built three other cottages in town for members of his family.

The building boasts excellent interior integrity, with an open ceiling and wall studs. It also has original doors, hardware, windows, shutters and linoleum flooring. Even some original furnishings are apparent — oil lamps (with hand-made shades), old Eaton’s cabinets, an old GE refrigerator and RCA Victor windup record player. The cottage was built around the large dining room table which was too big to bring in through the doors or windows. It is in good condition and has a high level of integrity.

The building has been designated as a Municipal Heritage Site.
