Description: Lot 5, Conc 2 SDS. Located at Stavebank Road opposite the arena in Port Credit, it was a railway station hotel, built by Henry Blakely about 1880, and operated by Alex Blakely. An earlier building on the site, the Vanstone Hotel, operated as a hotel on the stagecoach route which ran from Port Credit to Streetsville, via Cooksville and Springfield. When the Port Credit railway station was moved to its present location about 1905, the hotel business declined and the building was made into apartments. It was demolished in 1967. From the Harold Hare Collection.
