Description du lieu patrimonial

47 Queen Street South is located on the east side of Queen Street South, south of Ellen Street in the former village of Streetsville, now the City of Mississauga. The two storey, brick building was constructed in 1855.

The property was designated, by the City of Mississauga, in 1986, for its heritage value, under Part IV, of the Ontario Heritage Act (By-law 226-86).

Valeur patrimoniale

47 Queen Street South is associated with William Graydon, organiser of the Loyal Orange Lodge. William and his son John built the structure, in 1855, on land donated by Henry Rutledge. The building was the meeting place of the Orange Lodge, No. 290, first organised June 12, 1845. The Orange Lodge met in this hall from the 1850s until the late 20th century. It is currently used for a commercial business.

47 Queen Street South is a good representation of the Classical Revival style featuring a heavily decorated Grecian cornice. The symmetrical facade is enhanced by ornate brickwork with Italianate yellow brick quoins, crosses, radiating voussoirs, alternating headers and stretchers around each rectangular opening and dentil trim on the gable ends. The patterned brick was typical of Peel County in the mid-nineteenth century. It was the style favoured for public buildings.
