Description:
Black and white photograph of two-storey brick, Georgian style home with five-bay, centre dooorway facade. It was build circa 1800 and belonged to Field family who were United Empire Loyalists. Their graves are still in the private cemetery on the property.

Historical plaque reads:
"THE FIELD HOUSE
One of the oldest brick houses in Ontario, this handsome Georgian structure was built about 1800. Originally a farm house, it was the home of Gilbert Field (1765-1815), a United Empire Loyalist who was in possesion of the land by 1790. During the War of 1812 the house was used by British forces and was subjected to a brief bombardment from an American battery. Though damaged, it was one of the few homes in the area to survive the hostilities. It remained in the Field family until about 1925, after which it passed through various hands. In 1968 the Ontario Heritage Foundation acquired the property to ensure its continued preservation and twelve years later the Field House was returned to private ownership with a protective covenant.
