Nemo Hall Doors Open Lambton County

Nemo Hall

Nemo Hall was built for John J. Kerr, a prominent builder, lumber mill owner and oil man. The home is an excellent example of the Second Empire style, and the only remaining building of this architectural type in Petrolia. The original property was three acres and included the house, a coach house, an orchard, exotic gardens and five oil wells.
