Description of Historic Place
The Elliott House is located at 5732 Kennedy Road, on the west side of Kennedy Road, north of Watline Avenue, in the City of Mississauga. The one-and-a-half storey stone residence was constructed in circa 1860.
The property was designated, by the City of Mississauga, in 1981, for its heritage value, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act, By-law 919-81.
The Elliott House is associated with the Elliott family. Adam Elliott, an immigrant from Scotland settled in Peel in 1825. He was notable for having served on the Grand Jury in 1827. In 1836 he purchased the land on which the Elliot House stands. Adam's son John is also notable for having built the first reaping machine in Canada. John Elliott sold the property in 1886 and many owners followed. In the late 1980s it was converted from a residence to a restaurant.
The Elliott House was built in the Georgian style using the now rare building material, Credit Valley stone. The one-and-a-half storey T-shaped plan was created by the two later extensions on the west elevation. The integrity of the Georgian styling was retained and is evident by its side gable roof, five-bay symmetrical facade and central entrance featuring a transom.
