“Crossways” is one of the few heritage bungalows left in Coonoor. It was built by an Englishman Col.Hunt. It changed hands and the new owners the Maharaja of Mysore’s sister’s family gave the bungalow it’s present name “Crossways”. It is at the end of Walker’s Hill Road & Porter’s Avenue and hence the bungalow got it’s name “Crossways”, which has remained unchanged till date. The present owners Rajpals converted the erstwhile secretary’s quarters into the Crossways Cottage.
