Downtown Erin Mills Condominiums is situated in prestigious Erin Mills in central Mississauga with a wealth of shops, restaurants and green spaces close by. The condo community by Pemberton Group is focused on providing residents with a convenient and urban lifestyle.
Another perk of living at Eglinton Avenue and Metcalfe Avenue is living in a city that has a true sense of place. Mississauga is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, but its roots go far deeper. The community provides many opportunities to connect with history. Take a look at some of the best bets for learning about the region’s storied past:
Benares Historic House
Located at 1507 Clarkson Road North, the estate dates back all the way to 1836 when Captain James Beveridge Harris purchased 197 partially cleared acres of land. Built in the early 20th century, the house has been restored to its former glory with many artifacts dating back to its early days. The house is believed by many to have provided inspiration for Canadian author Mazo de la Roche’s famed Whiteoaks of Jalna novels. De la Roche was a close friend of the family and lived nearby while writing the series. In April 2008, Parks Canada and the Historic Sites and Monuments Board unveiled a plaque at Benares, honouring Mazo de la Roche and her work.
Leslie Log House
One of Mississauga’s most well-known landmarks, the structure dates back all the way to 1826 when John Leslie used local white cedar logs to build a home for his family. Though it was originally located at Mississauga Road, north of Derry, it was moved in 1994 to its current location at 4415 Mississauga Road. The museum works in partnership with the Streetsville Historical Society.
Timothy Street House
Streetsville is a favourite among locals and visitors alike thanks to its village feeling and Victorian streetscapes. To learn more about how the quaint corner of the city got its start, visit Timothy Street House at 41 Mill St. Timothy Street, the namesake of Streetsville, built his home in 1825 and the structure is believed to be the first brick house in Peel County, likely made from red bricks and Credit River stone. The house overlooked the site of the Street’s saw and grist mills, distillery and tannery, industries that help the township flourish.
Why not combine history with a hike? This 2.4 kilometre pathway travels across a heritage-rich area along the Credit River Valley, staring from Burnhamthorpe Road at Walnut Grove Rd and ending near the Junction of Mississauga and the South Millway. The leafy trail offers access points to landmarks such as the Adamson Homestead, Glen Erin Inn, The Grange, Lislehurst, St. Peter’s Anglican Church and the former Erindale Public School. Plus it’s also a natural habitat for trilliums at white-tailed deer!
Old Port Credit Village
Designated as a Heritage Conservation District, Old Port Credit Village features streets named for the region’s first settlers. The lakefront community’s long history was shaped by the Ojibwa, French fur traders and a burst of industry in the late 19th century. There’s so much to learn about harbourfront district, it’s well worth visiting the light house or taking a walking tour of the area.
Mississauga is a dynamic place to live and as its evolution continues to unfold, the neighbourhood immediately around Downtown Erin Mills Condos will be home base for many of the changes on the horizon. Just across the street, Erin Mills Town Centre is undergoing a massive transformation, and development of the new Mississauga Transitway, which will feature new stations along Eglinton Avenue, is underway.
