Historic Grey-Oliver Cottage is located in the southeast corner of the
cemetery. Built in the early 1850's, the Cottage was placed on the National
Register of Historic Places along with a dozen other Montrose homes in 1976. It
was originally located on Second Street, just two blocks from its present
location. For many years it was the home of Ann Sibley Oliver
(great-granddaughter of Cyrus Sibley) and her husband Jack Oliver. When the
property changed hands after their deaths, the new owner Robert Merritt donated
the Cottage to a group of local citizens who raised the necessary money to have
it relocated and restored.
Montrose Historic Preservation Society has now undertaken the
project to furnish and equip the Cottage for display and by arrangement, for
use by the community. If you wish to assist in this effort or have other
questions, please leave a message on the Information Line at (251) 990-2727
with your name and phone number.
