Description: 31 Mississauga Road South. Plan 300W, pt. Lots 11, 12. The one-and-a-half storey building has a gable roof and small dormer on the front facade. The porch has been enclosed to provide for a five-bay facade with windows being two-over-two. The structure is finished in horizontal siding. The historian Verna Mae Weeks both describes and illustrates the frame house as Ellis Chandler's. The land title records Ellis Chandler, a labourer, both buying and mortgaging the southern half of Lots 11 and 12 north of Bay Street in 1911. Weeks gives his occupation as delivering mail from the train station to the post office. He is the same Ellis Chandler associated with 24 John Street South, married to Jane Chandler. In 1921 when his son William owned the property at today's 31 Mississauga Road South, he was described as a gardener from New Toronto. The house is first illustrated on the 1928 fire insurance plan. It is designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act and is located within the Old Port Credit Village Heritage Conservation District.
