Merrick Thomas House

Merrick Thomas House

Featured Sites
Built in 1829 and moved to its present site in 1955, Thomas House is a fine example of a settler’s second house. The one-and-a-half-storey clapboard structure with saltbox roofline, typical of its period, is constructed of white pine logs squared into 12-inch-by-12-inch timbers on a fieldstone foundation. The Oakville Historical Society now operates the house.
