Location And Former Ownership
Heritage Valley Health System Expanding In Beaver Co.
Built circa 1840, well prior to Richmond Hill‘s incorporation in 1873, this Regency-style dwelling at 19 Church Street North has been designated as a Cultural Heritage Resource by the Town of Richmond Hill.
The facility opened in 1997. Formerly the house of prominent local leader and Parliamentarian Amos Wright, 1809-1886, it adjoins a park also named for Wright. One of the signature flowers in this garden is the rose, especially since roses form part of the town emblem and since rose growing was once an important industry in Richmond Hill.
