Neil MacDonald's Mill, O'Leary

     When I was in O'Leary last week I took these photos. First is a scanned page from the book, "Threads of the Past: A History of O'Leary 1837-1992" - page 253
Below is a closer look at the text from the book, page 253.
     This large house is in the style of Colonial Revival (on PEI we call this house a "Fox House").  The house features, a hip-style roof; wide eaves with brackets; wide eave returns; a plan that's asymmetrical; single-hung windows; and gable 1/2-round window. 
     This house has some modern changes, ie. picture windows, aluminum siding, removed window and door trim and removed verandah and balcony detailing.
Below is the mill.  It features a grambrel roof with west facing gable dormers with round-top windows.  On the front/north end (facing O'Leary Rd) is a double door flanked with single-hung 2-over-2 windows and in the gable a modified palladian window.
