Description: This building was the home of Herbert Henry Shaver at the corner of Cook and Dundas Streets. Shaver was appointed postmaster on October 16, 1898 and operated the post office out of his house. The first postmaster, J. H. Savigny, had been appointed about 1837. After him several others had been in charge of the Cooksville Post Office, which moved from Jacob's Hotel to the Walter House, and then to Schiller's store. Shaver operated the post office out of this building until 1914 when he had the house demolished and a new two storey red brick structure built on the site at 47 Dundas Street West. Shaver died in 1917 and Hugh Bowden took over the post office which he moved to his Cooksville Pharmacy.
