The Samuel Pearson House on St. Lawrence Street is an elegant stone double perched on the corner of Colbourne Street. Designated heritage, the house was built in 1866 by the skilled stonemasons who built the Rideau Canal. This garden is the result of a 26 year labour of love. It is awash with the splendid colours of hollyhocks, peonies, morning glory, begonias and phlox.
