Heritage Status: None
Built: 1910-1913
Builder/Architect: Unknown

Architecture:

  • Typical of the period, this hip-roofed house has hip roofed attic dormers and plain trim all around. The porch has been fully enclosed recently.

 

History:

  • Assessment records state that this house was built in 1910. At that time, Robert Feindel, a notable merchant of the day, owned the property but it is not known whether he lived here ot not. 
  • The home was also lived in by Donald Sutherland, a highly acclaimed film actor, perhaps best known for his roles in MASH, Pride and Prejudice, Ordinary People, and The Italian Job. He and wife owned the home from 1967 to 1971, so likely their son Kiefer Sutherland also lived here, as he was born in 1966. Kiefer is also an actor, well known for his starring role in the series 24.
