Description: 24-26 Dundas Street East. Conc 1 SDS, pt. Lot 15, N ┐. Also known as Irwin's Hardware. Built in the 1860s or 1870s on the site of the old Daniel Harris store which he sold in 1818 to Jacob Cook. The store was among the many buildings destroyed in the Cooksville fire of 1852. The building has gone through many owners. It is a two-storey, six bay fašade structure with a medium pitched gable roof. Heritage listed. There was a fire in the building on February 19, 2004, as reported in the Mississauga News of February 20, 2004, but it does not appear that the building was damaged. However another fire in 2013 destroyed the buildings. A request was made to the Heritage Advisory Committee that the buildings be replicated even though they were not designated. The Committee decided that the buildings were not worthy of heritage designation and recommended that the owner's request that they be demolished be approved. Description as of July 2018.
