Description: Charles Horace “Holly” Gooderham commissioned this opulent twenty-one room Italianate brick manor at a cost of $30,000. William Gooderham, founding partner of Gooderham and Worts, had summoned Holly, his son, to the village to oversee his business endeavours therein. Upon William Gooderham’s death in 1881, the business, including Holly, left the village. The Gooderham Mansion served as a tourist resort, at the turn of the century, and as a seminary in the mid twentieth century. Many notable figures resided in the house, including artist George Chavignaud, Member of Parliament Walter Curry and Boer War veteran Major General Francois-Louis Lessard.
