Oakville - Merrick Thomas House

Merrick Thomas House is a fine example of a settler’s house. This one-and-a-half-storey clapboard structure – with the 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 as a museum. Costumed volunteers will provide cooking demonstrations over an open fire.
