The Geddes Gingerbread House - 1852, near Metcalfe Bridge, Elora

Gingerbread House. In the early years of the town, the area around here was the hub of business. James Geddes (a lawyer), after whom Geddes Street was named, built this house in 1852. It is a typical Ontario 1½-storey brick house. The front door is not shown, because I found the store signage (vintage clothing) distracting!


James was the son of Andrew Geddes who moved to Elora in 1844. Andrew Geddes was the son-in-law of Captain William Gilkison, the founder of Elora.
