Alexander McLean House along Hollis Street
Alexander McLean House, c. 1797, is a good example of the Georgian style of architecture. This two-and-a-half storey building is six bays wide with a high brick foundation. The wood shingled building has a steeply pitched gable roof with four Scottish dormers, two in the front and rear. The front north dormer is considerably older and smaller than the south dormer (built in 1860). Prince Mathews Palace was constructed in 1995 to the north using architectural materials and design that complement the traditional character of Hollis Street. Dormer windows jut out from the truncated gable roof of the building. The cladding material on the building is brick. Concrete is used as trim around the windows, quoins (at the corners) and along the base of the building.
