Lordly Estate Municipal Museum website

Built, circa 1806, by Capt. McCurdy, who was later lost at sea, Evergreen Hall, as the house was originally known, became the home of Charles Inglis Lordly and his wife Margaret McCurdy.

It is a fine example of Georgian architecture with two parlors, kitchen, dining room, six bedrooms and six fireplaces. A servants’ staircase leads from the dining area to the second floor. Leather straps are still attached to the stairwell, used to assist one of the ladies when ascending the stairs.

The house has been continuously lived in, with two short exceptions, since 1806. Few changes have been made to the original structure. It was the centre of cultural and social life in the community.
