Heritage Value Statement

Tall and imposing, the vertical massing of this residence is typical of the Late Victorian era. The projecting front bay has a sloped roof, with paired brackets at the cornice. The house survives in intact condition, except for the enclosure of the corner entry porch, and the addition of a concrete block chimney on the east façade. By 1901 the property had been acquired from Donald McLellan by Joseph McCourt, a miner who lived on Victoria Road. This house appears to have been built as a rental property. By 1906 it had been acquired by David Taylor, listed in directories as retired. By 1908 it was occupied by A.B. Snider, who bought the house by 1910.
