History Description
George Pingle was a labourer who purchased a building lot from William Eakin’s small subdivision of lots near the railway station in 1874. He and his wife, Frances built a modest frame cottage on the eastern portion of the property, where they lived with their five children. Their eldest daughter, Maud, was a dress-maker. By the time of the 1891 census, George Pingle was employed as a farm labourer. In 1920, the property was sold by the executors of Frances Pingle to James Denny. In 2007, the exterior of the George Pingle House was restored with the re-introduction of a front door facing Station Lane as part of a larger building project to add an addition to the east end of the old house.
