Built circa 1857 by Merrickville’s first lock-keeper, John Johnson, for his spinster daughter, two years after he finished the larger stone home beside it as his own residence. Johnson had been a veteran of the Napoleonic wars, helped build the Rideau Canal, and then successfully applied for the lock-keeper’s post. Built in wood atop a stone foundation, the home was for many years known as the Keagan House after the family who became its longest residences. Modernized in the 1980s, it retains the charm of the “Ontario Cottage” design which Johnson followed, both in his own stone home, and in his daughter’s house.
