The History  

The 1810 Carter House was initially built by Loyalist Frances Newman Perkin in the early 1800s. In 1855, Newman's daughter's husband, William Pywell, sold the house to William A. Carter. It remained the Carter family homestead until 1936. In 1964, the Carter House was purchased by the Kingston Peninsula Heritage, where it was restored to its current state, with the intention to preserving it for the future. Today, it operates as a heritage home, library, museum, and tea room.
