Alex Spratt House - Manotick Ontario

A fine example of mid-nineteenth century classical revival (or neo-classical) architecture. The colours are most likely true to the original colours, or colours used in the era of construction. If this house were located south of the border, it would be referred to as Federal style architecture. This is the house that the owners of the later named 'Watson Mill' in Manotick lived in.
