This fine Queen Anne-style ‘cottage’ was built as a summer home along the Niagara River by my great great grandfather, Dr. Pliny Harold Hayes (1824 ~ 1894). By the time I came along, this house had long been out of our family, but the owners, & those of the two big family homes on either side, were older people who enjoyed having us kids rampaging around in their gardens & such. Or so it seemed ~ they never threw us out. This house & the others were all built between 1888 & 1892.
This beautiful place is directly across the road from My Front Yard.
