Description & Services

Lordly House Museum 
Built, circa 1806, by Capt. McCurdy, who was later lost at sea, Evergreen Hall, as the house was originally known, became the home of Charles Inglis Lordly and his wife Margaret McCurdy. 
It is a fine example of Georgian architecture with two parlors, kitchen, dining room, six bedrooms and six fireplaces. A servants’ staircase leads from the dining area to the second floor. Leather straps are still attached to the stairwell, used to assist one of the ladies when ascending the stairs. 
Lordly Park 
Lordly Park is available for use throughout the year. Plan your wedding for the area, we can even provide electricity. 
The playground offers a safe area for younger children. Places to sit and read, a wet land viewing area.
