Huntley Heritage

Second in the Series










S.S. No. 1 Huntley - Mulligan’s School

2193 Richardson Side Rd., Carp. 

Thomas Mulligan donated land in 1820 for the site of “Mulligan’s School”.  Initially there were log structures before a stone building was erected in 1883.  An organ was installed in 1929.  The building ceased operation as a school in 1957 and became a residence for several families.  In 1989, it was converted into the popular “Cheshire Cat” old English pub, and is also a designated heritage site.
After a devastating fire, The Cheshire Cat is now back in business at Christmas 2013.

The Bradley/Craig barn is an excellent and rare example of a 19th century dairy barn. It’s large size, heavy timber framing with mortise and tenon joinery, and monitor roofline with clerestory windows are characteristic of dairy barns constructed during this period. The barn was constructed in the 1870's by well known local barn builder John Cummings with the help of the community.
