Nemo Hall

419 King St, Petrolia, ON N0N 1R0, Canada

Built in 1878 by John J. Kerr (prominent builder, lumber mill owner and oil man), this home is an excellent example of the Second Empire Style. The original property was three acres and included a coach house, orchard, and five oil wells. Nemo Hall has three floors, twenty rooms, and five fireplaces. A white marble fireplace, located in the front parlour, won first prize at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893.
