Wolverton Hall

This fine brick house, regency in style with some Gothic touches, was built about 1854-55 by Enos Wolverton. It retains the splendid circular stairs, which originally led to a windowed belvedere above the house's roof. Wolverton was born in Cayuga County, New York, in 1810 and came to Canada in 1826. In 1844, he bought 200 acres here on the River Nith and in 1851, laid out a village plot. He became Wolverton's first postmaster that September. During the depression following the Crimean War, he rented this house and moved to Walsingham Township where he built and operated a steam sawmill. He had returned to Wolverton Hall by 1861 and died here in 1892.
