Description: 1507 Cawthra Road. Conc 2 SDS, Lot 10. This 2 storey 5 bay facade house in Georgian Revival style was built in 1926 by Grace Cawthra-Elliot on land granted to Joseph Cawthra in 1808. Grace was the granddaughter of Joseph Cawthra. Although she lived at Yeadon Hall in Toronto this was her summer home. Much of the interior wood panelling came from Yeadon Hall which was built in 1867 by Henry Cawthra, Graces father. There were extensive outbuildings: garages, woodsheds and gazebos. There is also the vestige of a formal walled garden.

The building was acquired by the City of Mississauga and underwent extensive renovations (not restoration) in 1990. The surrounding woodlot is maintained and managed by the City. Designated under the terms of Ontario Heritage Act. This photograph taken about 1980, prior to extensive renovations to the building.
