Stone Houses - Part 2
Ridley Cottage (1845)
This regency style stone cottage is a rarity in Peterborough. Built into the hillside, it had a walk out basement kitchen. I know of just two others, one which is so buried in new construction it looks completely modern, and Hutchison House. Dr. Robert Ridley built the house for his wife and seven children. Dr. Ridley died in 1851. His wife Elizabeth kept a boarding house, and then remarried another doctor, Dr. John McNabb.
