The Walkerby-George House

 

Marrakech Mansion has been designated as a Heritage Property and with that

 

designation comes a name.

 

Heritage homes in Niagara on the Lake are named for the builder and the person who applies for the heritage designation.

 

 Joseph Walkerby likely built the home in about 1860 and I Donald George applied

 

to have the home designated. (it was my wife's idea!)

 

 

The property cannot be subdivided; the exterior of the house cannot be altered

 

and many of the interior features must be protected. 

 

We will continue to call the House Marrakech Mansion and hopefully

 

guests will be able to enjoy it for many years.
