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. As part of Digital Doors Open, learn more about this house through the video below, or check out their YouTube playlist for more content.
