History

The Leslie Log House was first occupied by John Leslie Sr. and his wife Esther Beattie Leslie. They came to Upper Canada in 1824 from Sutherlandshire, Scotland.

The house was originally located at 7250 Mississauga Road, just north of Derry Road in the Meadowvale area. In 1994 the house was moved to its current location to preserve it for future generations. The property was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act for its architectural, historical and cultural value.

The building is a rare example of early 19th century log construction. Over the years, there have been renovations such as adding and then later removing a summer kitchen. Another addition was a full basement with stone walls. But the original structure has been preserved as well as the original barn foundations.
