Benares Gallery

Located at 1503 Clarkson Road North this stately 19th century house, built in Georgian Survival style, was the home to four generations of the Harris and Sayers families. One of the Museums of Mississauga it has been beautifully restored to the period just after the First World War. Benares may have been the inspiration for the Whiteoaks of Jalna novels by Mazo De La Roche, who actually lived near there for some time.
