Houses of the 1800s
Purported to be haunted, the Mort Estate feels like it in places, with an eerie feeling of being watched. Sunday morning is a quiet time to snoop around the neighbourhood learning about its past residents' lifestyles.
Many houses sport filigree ironwork on the verandas and ornaments atop high-pitched rooves. Fully restored, a few of them display their original style to perfection, particularly in Taylor Street. Many homes here have the original slate roof, fireplace surrounds and red cedar doors, while others still include the attic bedrooms. Boulton Terrace takes you back to the time of the early workers' cottages.
It could take up two hours of your day to complete the walk, so a drive around might suffice to satisfy your curiosity.
