McDougall Cottage is an excellent example of a better than typical local stone cottage in downtown Cambridge (Galt). It offers a view into the past while preserving an important piece of Cambridge's local architectural history. Galt particularly has an important collection of fine Heritage buildings and so the whole town is worth a visit. The house is the work of Scottish stone masons in the 19th Century. McDougal Cottage also has programs and serves tea. Well worth a visit.

The artifacts were displayed beautifully from the bells to the library. A family place to enjoy no matter what age. The men who were staffing this facility were so helpful, well informed and made the visit truly enjoyable. Children can ring the old bells which brought a smile to my face thinking of my grandchildren particularly as their father is a firefighter. Hoping to replicate in our historical Fire Hall in Welland, Ontario. Our Board members were all truly impressed with the dedication.
