Description:
420 Division Street.
Notes:
This residence was built in 1835 by Ebenezer Perry, who first arrived in Cobourg in 1815, and became first Chairman of the Board of Police Commissioners, which preceded a Town Council as governing body of the town. Woodlawn, as it is called, is an outstanding example of Regency taste with contrasting window size on the first and second storeys, sweeping galleries, low hip-roof, and tall chimneys. The front doorway is probably one of the finest in Ontario. Two wings were later added to the house in the 1850’s although only the one on the south side survives. It is now the Woodlawn Terrace Inn.
