1898 - image cf. P.E.I. Public Archives & Record OfficeThis house was designed by William Critchlow Harris in 1894 for Frank Heartz (later 25th Lt. Governor of P.E.I.). The house (aka The Cottage) was constructed by Charles McGregor and completed in 1895.
In 1914 the house was purchased by the Hon. John Alexander Mathieson, Chief Justice and Premier of Prince Edward Island.
In 1951 two daughters of Judge Mathieson converted the house to a guest house, naming it Caroma Lodge.
In 2008 Graeme and Judy Sheldon purchased the home - they sensitively renovated the house with special attention to the fine workmanship of its detailing.
