Description: 5025 Hurontario Street. Conc 1 EHS, pt. Lot 1. This was an Erie Shore barn without a foundation storey, but possessing metal siding and a roof. There was a drive door on the west fašade. The roof type was an Erie Shore Gambrel roof. The Erie Shore barn, as its name implies, is closely associated with the counties adjacent to Lake Erie. Its presence as far east as Mississauga is an anomaly. The Erie Shore barn resembles the Two Bay barn in that it has only one storey and is similar in scale. The roof however, is different, being the gambrel rather than the gable. The floor is usually at ground level. The arrangement of space inside the barn marks the most significant variation from the other barn types. The barn is divided into two spaces: a drive floor and a stable/storage area. Erie Shore barns are characterized by a light lumber frame, as opposed to the heavy timbers used in the construction of all the other types. Previously listed on the Heritage Register this barn was demolished in 1995. Description as of April 2011.
