Grahame House
40 – Second Street SE

Grahame House

Designation Date:  April 23, 2007
Designation Authority:  Town of Teulon
Present Owner:  Privately Owned

Grahame House, a grandly proportioned four-square building finished with red brick, built in 1919, is one of Teulon’s most impressive historic dwellings. Characterized by its symmetrical proportions, overall boxy form and hipped roof with gable dormers, the structure also is distinguished by features such as limestone trim and a wraparound verandah that capitalizes on the large-lot setting. The design, based on one of the more ambitious standardized plans available from the T. Eaton Co. catalogue (likely the “Easton/Edinburgh (Prairie Mansion)”), is roomy, sturdily built with double brick walls and enhanced by a fine interior. Built for James Grahame, a magistrate and political figure in Teulon, and occupied by the Blackwood family for over four decades, this attractive home is a well-maintained community landmark.
