Description: James W. Taylor built this Regency style house. John Skynner, the subsequent owner, a retired Royal Navy Commander, dubbed it “The Anchorage.” The City moved it from its original site, on the shores of Lake Ontario, in the mid 1970s. The building now forms part of the Museums of Mississauga. It houses administrative offices, collections, changing exhibits and a Sunday afternoon tea room.
