Scope and content

The mid-block building located on the south side at 48 James St. was built in 1840-60 in the Ontario Vernacular style. The one-storey cottage was once the home of Mrs. Peterman.
It has a rectilinear plan, a medium-pitched, gable roof and an asymmetrical façade. There is no porch addition. The glazed entrance door has a transom above and a more recent awning addition. All the original windows have been replaced, but the plain, wood, lug sills and trim remain. The shutters are not original. Wood frame construction is covered by vinyl siding. The structure probably had wood cove siding originally. There is a parged, stone foundation. According to the 2000 inventory, this building is very old. (1, 3)
