Looking for familiar names, I came across this stone for Hiram Hurd and wondered if he was the Hurd for which Hurd Avenue in what is now downtown Burlington was named.
I thought he was a farmer, but it turns out he was actually a businessman and alderman in Hamilton who owned property in Burlington that was used as an orchard and nursery (Burlington is next door to Hamilton, but whereas Hamilton was mostly an industrial city, Burlington was mostly agricultural).
This house was built near the intersection of what is now Caroline St and Hurd Ave is known as the Hurd Farm House, although he did not actually live there; it may have been used as the farm manager's house. It was built around 1877 in a Folk Victorian style and is now a heritage designated property. All the alterations and replacements to the house are sympathetic to the period, including the sash windows and this pinwheel verge and it won a Heritage Award in 1991.
Hurd Avenue was named in memoriam of Hiram Hurd after his death in 1905. This house is on Caroline Street, though I am not certain if it was named for his daughter - there is a 'Carrie' who died at age 4 in 1862. Caroline St was the boundary of the town proper with the Hurd farm property to the north and this house is the last remaining farmhouse on that street.
