~ “The Casey Estate” ~

The Casey Estate is the first Limited Edition in artist Jenny Phillips' new "Elgin County Heritage Collection and her first major work in watercolours. In January of 1993 for health and environmental concerns as well as a desire to meet new chalenges, Jenny made the change from painting in oils to watercolours. Her attention to detail and the vibrancy of each new painting wins approval from old and new clients alike.

"The Casey Estate" a brief history

George Casey was elected as a member of Parliament for West Elgin (Liberal) in 1872, his mother, Sarah Elliot Casey, a wealthy Elgin County business woman had this twenty room mansion built on the Old Talbot Road, near Middlemarch for them. George married Ellen Burke and they resided in Ottawa whilr Parliament was in session and with his mother during recess. Elected at age twenty-three, George served his riding for twnety-eight years and then retired only to come back as Parliamentary Librarian in 1903 and died died shrtly thereafter.

His mother, Sarah Casey, lived the rest of her life at the mansion and died at eighty-three years of age in 1897. The old house passed through numerous owners and at one time was vacant for a number of years. The estate was later sold to some successful farmers who restored it. It is presently privately owned and I might add coveted by many Elgin County women.
