275 Balsam Drive, Oakville, Canadian Inventory of Heritage Buildings, 1972


At the time of photographing, Parks Canada recorded that Dr. & Ms. G. Owen were the present owners. They estimated that the house had been built in 1865. 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 1971/72 heritage project. There are 4 photographs of the house in this record. Click on "Pages" "Select". There is not a clear photograph of the front of the house, unfortunately. The Parks Canada photographer noted "Dense growth" on the house front. It has been extensively remodeled since these photographs.
