Description:
Black and white photo of Roslyn Cottage, a classic Niagara-on-the-Lake white clapboard with dark shutters. The oldest part of the house is a three-bay design in wood with a very low pitched roof, built in 1822 by a wealthy merchant of the town, Ralph Morden Crysler. In the late 1830s, he sold the house to the lawyer Charles Hall who probably made the Greek Revival improvements and moved the entrance to the side. Bruce Rigg, a town doctor did much of the landscaping himself in the 1940s and 1950s.
