159 Balsam Drive, Oakville, Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings, 1971


The Laurie Smith Heritage Consulting report, Balsam Drive Streetscape includes this address, listing "Patrick's House" as it was called, a frame house built in about 1852. It is Listed on the Town of Oakville Register of Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest (Not Designated). Estimated construction date is 1852. Balsam Drive was previously named Central Avenue. A report by Laurie Smith Heritage Consulting, Balsam Drive Streetscape is linked here for your information. Starting on page 8, is the history of the land settlement and information on the heritage houses on the street. Only 3 of which Parks Canada included in this project. Parks Canada recorded the owner as C. Walls (Charlie and Doris Walls). The house was estimated to have been built in 1851. The Parks Canada photographs are quite dark so have been digitally lightened to try and show the texture of the house materials and its features.
