Brief History:

David and Jane Charlesworth, who were non-residents and lived in Seaforth, purchased this lot in 1873. The house was built by John Irwin, carpenter, in 1875 and he was the first tenant according to assessment records. He then built a house across the road on Elora st. S. and relocated. This residence has a second section added about 1910. Over the years it has been rented as two separate dwellings.
