214 Second Street W


Orange Clark House

Designation Date: June 24, 1994
Designation Authority: Stonewall (Town)
Present Owner: privately owned

The modest-sized Orange Clark House, with its low profile and honest expression of materials and construction, is a good illustration of a Bungalow-style dwelling, a design movement introduced to North America in the early twentieth century. Built as a summer residence for the Clark family, the structure incorporates many features of the style, including a sweeping roofline with shed dormers, an expansive wooden verandah and natural fieldstone finishes. The finely crafted building, erected by Samuel Cooper of Stonewall, also is noted for its characteristic massive stone fireplace and chimney. Home of the Samuel George Sims family for three generations, the informal dwelling is a distinct feature and integral component of its Stonewall neighbourhood.
