Description of Historic Place
151 Robert Street is located on the west side of Robert Street, south of Hugh Street, in the Town of Milton. The one storey wood frame residence was constructed circa 1860.
The property was designated by the Town of Milton in 2007 for its heritage value under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act (By-law 005-2007).
151 Robert Street is an excellent example of an Ontario Cottage style of architecture. Typical of this style is the front roof articulated with a gothic gable centred over the entrance. The cottage is a one storey rectangular box capped with a hip roof and original double hung wood windows with two lights per sash. The residence is historically associated with prominent Milton hotel keeper, John Wallace Jr.
In June 2006, 151 Robert Street was relocated from its original site at 167 Mary Street as a part of the Town Hall expansion process.
