The Furlong House

 

Maison Furlong
It is a typical mid-19th-century construction with end-to-end dovetail joints. This good example of a simple-base house offers an added Victorian feature: A large gable-top dormer window interrupting the centre of the eaves. Cedar shingles cover the outer wall siding as well as the roof. Architrave mouldings surround the hung windows and a gallery flanks either side of the house. Both the Furlong house and the Birmingham farm are the only two 19th-century farmhouses remaining on the territory of Percé. While showing over the years its genuine and original structure, the Furlong house has also become a visual landmark in our rural landscape.
