La Maison Henry-Stuart / Henry-Stuart House
Cette charmante maison au cœur d'un jardin est un remarquable exemple d'un « cottage orné » inspiré par les principes esthétiques du mouvement pittoresque d'origine anglaise. Elle fut bâtie en 1849 par Maria Curry, épouse du marchand William Henry, et fut dotée d'un toit évasé, d'une grande galerie et de portes-fenêtres, le tout en harmonie avec le paysage environnant. Le délicat décor intérieur et l'élégant mobilier des propriétaires Adèle et Mary Stuart, qui habitèrent cette maison de 1918 à 1987, évoquent tout le raffinement de la vie bourgeoise de l'époque.
