Description
This a sketch of the home of the family of King Henry Munn at 32 Dundas Street East, Munn's Corners, Oakville (or Lot 15 Concession 1 SDS, at Dundas and 6th Line.) He was the youngest son of early Trafalgar Township settler, Daniel Munn.

This sketch from the 1858 Tremaine Map shows this house as a taller brick house. After a fire in the 1930s much of it was rebuilt with a lower roofline, new windows, etc. The brick quoins remain but the house was quite altered. (Information provided by the Town of Oakville Heritage Planner.)

Area teacher, Alexander Fleming, married Millicent Munn on December 30, 1914. They lived with Millie's father (King Henry Munn) on the Munn family farm and raised their family in this house. The family also owned land on Lot 14 1 SDS and Lot 15 1 NDS. Robert Dewart Fleming, son of Alex and Millie, in turn managed the farm and raised his family there.

This Munn farm was sold in the mid-1950s and later owned by the Hays family.
