35 Cross Street, Dundas Ontario, circa 1846
Wood-Dale, the Regency cottage of Lt.Col. Thomas Howard McKenzie, built in 1846. Born in Scotland about 1811, McKenzie was one of the biggest merchants in Dundas, buying and selling pork by the hundreds of tons. His sales exceeded $1 million in his best year. He commanded a company in the 1837 Rebellion and was later Lt. Col. in the Wentworth Regiment. He was Mayor from 1859 to 1861.
This is one of my favourite houses in Dundas. View the photos below and you'll see why. Bad news is it sold a few years ago - in the high  $800s I believe...
