Photo of the Banwell House, located on Banwell Rd. north of Highway #2, with members of the Baillargeon family at rest and play in front of it; they lounge in chairs or nap on the grass in the shade of a large tree.


This house was built circa 1835, by Henry Banwell and supposedly housed the records of the county Registry Office, during the Rebellion of 1837-1838. The house, built in the French timber-fill style, was torn down post-1965 following a failed attempt to have it historically designated.
