|Since 1984, this Victorian brick house has been 'home away from home' for women attending residential programs at the Centre. Two-and-a-half stories high, with a gable roof and roundhead windows, Cumberland House has been identified as an important heritage structure by the Ontario Heritage Foundation, and is listed in the Canadian Inventory of Historical Buildings. It was designed by Kivas Tully, a 19th century provincial architect, who also designed Victoria Hall, Cobourg (1860), the former Trinity College (1852) and numerous other buildings across Ontario. The house was named in honour of the first superintendent of the Lakeshore Asylum, who resided there during his tenure.
