Summary of Cultural Attributes:
Historical: The Herrington Farm represents the south half of a 200-acre Crown grant to Rev. Robert I. Short in 1802 for all of Lot 4, Concession 5. He built the existing house in 1810 and then in 1824 divided the property into a north half and south half. Over the next 90 years, ownership of the south half changed families several times as follows: Richard Stevens, Robert Potts, Burton Philip, Isaac Glover and William Breeze.
In 1918 it was acquired by W. Lloyd Herrington and it has remained in the family ever since, and became known as the Herrington Farm. Today the farm has a second house with a separate number, built in 1965, and eleven outbuildings.
Architectural: The red brick with white trim, 1 ¾ -storey house is typical Ontario 19th century Gothic Cottage style - a rectangular shape with a central wide front entrance topped by a peaked gable with a gothic window below, believed to be the original. The lower floor doors and windows have a slight arch in the over brick.
