We Look Back Wednesday's | Uxbridge's History | The Methodist Parsonage

The Methodist Parsonage - 1878 40 Second Avenue, Uxbridge, Ontario

The above photo courtesy of Uxbridge - Scugog Historic Homes and Heritage Buildings by Paul Arculus and J. Peter Hvidsten was taken from Joseph Gould's photo album and shows what the Methodist Parsonage looked like in 1899.

 

In 1878 the Methodist Parsonage (now the United Church) trustees purchased the property for this home at the corner of Second Avenue and Dominion Street from Joseph Gould, and had this house built that same year.  The home was originally a red brick home.  There are six peaks to the roof of the house, with each one having a gothic-style window.  There is a large verandah on the west side of the house.  The verandah roof also once served as a large balcony for the second floor, which was later altered to a smaller balcony.

Today the house looks similar to the way it did years ago, however the bricks have been painted yellow and the decorative gingerbread, roof finials, shutters and chimneys have been removed over the years. 

This photo showing the south facade of the house was taken from a post card circa 1910.  Courtesy of Uxbridge - Scugog Historic Homes and Heritage Buildings by Paul Arculus and J. Peter Hvidsten

 

In 1949 the church sold the lot to the south of the manse and then in 1972 sold the entire property.

In this  2004 photo courtesy of Uxbridge - Scugog Historic Homes and Heritage Buildings by Paul Arculus and J. Peter Hvidsten you can see the smaller balcony located above the verandah.

 

The photo taken in 2022 shows the house as seen from the corner of Dominion Street and Second Avenue.  Below the house is viewed from Dominion Street.
