Summary of Cultural Attributes:
Historical: The Apple Manor B & B is situated on a town lot that is part of a 200-acre Crown grant to Edward Goodyear in 1803 for Lot 1 Concession 2. Although OLR records are difficult to follow, they do indicate the relevant lot was owned by Thomas Sanford in 1841 and it is believed that he built the house in 1843. Later it was acquired by Edward Cochrane, Member of Parliament for Northumberland County in the early 1870s. The property changed hands several times during the next 30 years and in 1901 it was acquired by William A. Buckley for $1000. During the 1930s a Dr. Dure lived there and ran his medical practice in the house. In 1941, it was bought by Thomas and Isabell Thompson, who lived in the house until 1958. Again it changed hands several times and then in the late 1980s was acquired by T. C. Cunningham and Robert S. Dodds who converted it to the Main Street B & B. Then in1998 it was purchased by the present owner, Shana C. S. Clark, who opened it as the Apple Manor bed and breakfast.
Architectural: The two-storey house is Georgian style. It features a wide front veranda with double and triple support pillars and a centre gable in the veranda cover. It has roof returns and prominent cornices with a frieze. The front door has side windows. Originally the façade was likely clap board but today has vinyl siding.
