Her­itage sta­tus

The Glengarry News - - Health, Beauty, Fitness, Nutrition - -- Richard Mahoney

A Maxville home built in 1890 has been des­ig­nated a her­itage site by North Glen­garry Town­ship.

The house at 67 Carr St. East in Maxville has been added to the mu­nic­i­pal reg­is­ter as a prop­erty of cul­tural her­itage value and in­ter­est. The sta­tus was rec­om­mended by the town­ship’s arts, cul­ture and her­itage com­mit­tee. The des­ig­na­tion means that the own­ers, Anne and Kevin Gwilliam, can ap­ply for fund­ing un­der the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Com­mu­nity Im­prove­ment Plan, how­ever, list­ing the prop­erty on the mu­nic­i­pal reg­is­ter does not guar­an­tee ap­proval un­der the CIP.

“There is an oral ac­count that this was pos­si­bly the res­i­dence of the first mayor in Maxville,” Anne Le­duc, direc­tor of com­mu­nity ser­vices, has in­formed coun­cil. A.D. MacRae be­came the first reeve of the vil­lage in 1892. The build­ing is a late Vic­to­rian two-storey home that was orig­i­nally clad in red brick, but is now cov­ered with hor­i­zon­tal, off-white sid­ing.
