The Galliday Tannery was located on the far left; the Dundore/Downs Tannery on the adjoining property on the right.

Its foundation, now covered by periwinkle, exceeds the measurement of sixteen by sixteen feet, the minimum allowed size of houses built on the first lots sold in the newly chartered town of 1802.
