18 Huron Street N (circa early 1850s)  After arriving in Southampton in 1848 and living in a log cabin at the mouth of the Saugeen River for 2 years, Southampton’s first permanent immigrant settler from Scotland, Captain John Spence, built this one-and-one-half storey Regency cottage, which is remarkable for retaining so many of its original architectural features. The original exterior features rough-cast siding over hand-split lathe and clapboards, six-over-six sash windows, a front door with sidelights and transom window, a hip roof and wide verandah. The original interior has a centre hall plan and the original pine floors, doors, wainscoting, stairs, and mouldings. In 1998 this important heritage house was provincially designated.
