Leslie Log House Project
4415 Mississauga Road, Mississauga

The Leslie Log House is now officially open! Drop by on a Wednesday or Sunday afternoon from 1 to 5 pm to learn more about our third Museums of Mississauga site!

Bradley House
This white cedar log house was built by Robert Leslie in 1826 on Mississauga Road, north of Derry. In 1994 it was moved to its current location; the building is designated under the Ontario Heritage Act.

The City of Mississauga is working in partnership with the Streetsville Historical Society to provide them with a new home in the Log House, with appropriate artifact and archival storage for their rich collection, as well as exhibit and meeting space. The Museums of Mississauga and the Friends of the Museums of Mississauga are also partners in this project, and will be developing educational programming and family activities based in the Leslie Log House. There is also consideration being given to an Urban Garden Project. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2010 and is funded by the City of Mississauga and Infastructure Ontario Art funds.
