Description: 530 Temagami Crescent. Plan 594, pt. Lot 1, pts 3, 4 43R14843. This Craftsman-style dwelling was designed and built in 1925 by civil engineer Arthur Frederick Wells (1880-1979). Wells started his business in 1907, which, with his brother-in-law, John Vickers Gray, became Wells & Gray Ltd., Engineers and Contractors. According to the Professional Engineers of Ontario, Wells was "a Canadian leader in the realm of reinforced concrete construction" and notable "as an architect and builder of major industrial facilities throughout central and southwestern Ontario in the 1910s and 1920s." Wells was forced to sell the property in 1936 and it was bought by salesman William Isaac Newmarch for $25,000. The property was originally located at 1379 Mississauga Road but a subsequent owner subdivided it in the 1990s, so that the home no longer faces directly on Mississauga Road.
