Four Acres. This expansive house was built in 1903 for A.J. Cassatt of Pennsylvania. Mr. and Mrs. E.T. Stotesbury purchased it in 1925 and had it torn down to build a bigger house called Wingwood. Wingwood was torn down in 1954 to make way for the Blue Nose Ferry Terminal. It is now the location of the Marine Atlantic Terminal.
