The Jennie Forbes Cottage is a special place. Built in 1857, it is one of a handful of original Stratford buildings still standing today. Architecturally, it is a Regency-style cottage with a ground floor layout, wide centre hallway, 12' ceilings and gorgeous six-over-six 8' windows. The wood trim and plank floor-boards are constructed of original pine and glow with a beautiful pumpkin coloured patina.
The Jennie Forbes Cottage is named after a young lady who resided here during the mid-1800s. Her mother and father doweried the house to her when she married in 1874. On-site is an interesting historical scrapbook which was prepared by a local archivist.
