The Red House

Community: Russell

The residence at 312 Pelly Avenue,  built in 1888 by William Barrett Lennard, is the oldest home still standing in Russell.  William’s daughter, Georgina, married  Major D’Arcy-Everett Boulton, the son of Major Charles Boulton. In 1994 while renovating, the current owners found an old flour sack in the walls stuffed full of army memorabilia and other historical information.  At present the house is rented, so it can only be viewed as a drive by or on a walking  tour.  If you would like more information you can contact the present owners.
