Description: 38 John Street. Plan 300W pt Lot 5. This is a simple residential structure typical of the vernacular styles within the old Port Credit neighbourhood west of the Credit River. The house is a storey-and-a-half frame building with wood siding, gable roof, and a two bay facade. In 1897, John Charles Peer, mariner, inherited Lot 5 south of Bay Street from his mother, Emma Peer. The land transfer was registered in 1901, perhaps indicating that a house had been built on the lot. Certainly, the frame house gives the appearance of the turn of the twentieth century. It is first illustrated on the 1910 fire insurance plan. The house has undergone some alterations as of 2003 and the bargeboard in the front gable end, the fenestration and the Victorian verandah/carport are all recent changes. The property is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act and is located within the Old Port Credit Village Heritage Conservation District.
