2495 Bronte Road is in 2020, 2495 Old Bronte Road. The house was the surgery and residence of Dr. Anson Buck and his family. Dr. Buck and his family were a prominent family in Palermo and Trafalgar Township. The Trafalgar Township Historical Society has a number of internet records with more information about Dr. Buck, his very interesting family, and their contributions to Trafalgar Township life. As taken from the 1994 letter to Conservation Review Board, "The two storey, red brick house, constructed in the 1860's in an "L" plan, is described as a good exampleof vernacular building with stylistic Italianate and Ontario Gothic influences. It has centre gables at thefront and rear, bay windows with stone sills and lintels, and wide overhanging eaves. Decorative paired brackets adorn the eaves, and there are circular roof vents in the gables." 6 photographs of the house are included in this record. The house was sold out of the family in 1924. The 2011 Cultural Heritage Assessment Report for the house is no longer available on the internet. Linked here is the December 2011 Town of Oakville Report for your further information about the changes in Second Line aka Bronte Road aka Highway 25 aka Regional Road 25 and the historic Palermo buildings including this house.
