Thomas Ballantyne, the founder of Black Creek Cheese Factory had this Queen Anne house constructed in 1892. This extra wide bay and gable red brick facade has a delicately embellished entrance porch in the geometric Eastlake style. The repetition of the 3 second level windows create a nice balance to the sunburst in the gable and the Romanesque half round windows. Ultimately charming and worth noting is the decorative brickwork throughout.
