Description: 6671 Ninth Line. Conc 10 NDS, pt. Lot 9. The house on this property was begun in 1843 by David Cordingley (1782-1867), a dyer from Wigan, Lancashire, England, who, with his wife and family, sailed to Canada, via Pennsylvania, some time between 1815 and 1819. The house, which is listed on the Heritage Register, was most likely completed in 1884. The barn on the property is a Two Bay with a stone foundation and vertical board and plain batten siding. The gable roof is set at an unusually high pitch. The Two Bay barn, like the Central Ontario barn, was designed to be a general purpose structure, but a much smaller building. It provided limited stable facilities, some storage space for crops and tools and a small working space. Its most notable feature is the absence of a foundation storey. Two Bay barns usually have the doors at the sides and not the ends. This particular barn is unusual in its placement of the doors. Description as of April 2011.
