Aberfoyle is a substantial single-storey Victorian residence reflecting the lifestyle of the well-to-do of the 1900s period. It’s a rare example of a summer holiday house that retains evidence of the division of labour and living arrangements between masters and servants. William Henry Davies Archer built it in 1899. Subsequent use as a Manse serving the Methodist Church at 50 Main Rd reflects the prominence of this Church in the early C20th while the passing of the house into private ownership reflects social changes through the mid C20th.
