Photographer's Note

This little octagonal building is in the garden of the 'The Briars' resort hotel in the community of Jackson's Point, on the shores of Lake Simcoe. It is now just a historic garden ornament, protected by Ontario's Heritage act. It was built in 1885 as an outbuilding of the manor house of Dr. Sibbald, the owner of the property at the time. He used it to house a small number of peacocks. This is the only eight sided building in Ontario.
