The "Stone Castle" is one of many cottages built in Lexington by Maltese immigrants as summer homes. It's all-stone design and intricate rooms are still admired today. Lexington became a "little Malta" of sorts in the summer with so many Maltese families living in close proximity to eachother and the shores of Lake Huron.
