The Oldest Home In West Hill Is The Oldest In Scarborough

It lies on the grounds of the Guild, not far from the top of the Scarborough Bluffs.

It is the first European dwelling in the area and the oldest man made dwelling in all of Scarborough that still stands. When it was built George Washington was still President of the United States, Napoleon had just become engaged to Josephine and a 24 year old Beethoven was just debuting as pianist in Vienna.

I've been there. I took a bunch of photos of all the old stonework too. I hope they do something with the Guild Inn while there is still something left of it.
