WELCOME TO STREETSVILLE... THE VILLAGE IN THE CITY

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Service

Welcome to Mississauga, Ontario. Mississauga offers a range of experiences that keeps visitors coming back again and again. When you come to visit Mississauga, explore its quaint historic villages and stunning architecture, visit the bustling waterfront and lakefront parks, or inspire yourself with Mississauga's world-class art and theatre at the Living Arts Centre.

There are a lot of things to see and do in Mississauga, and here are some places you should look into:

 STREETSVILLE - THE VILLAGE IN THE CITY

Within the Streetsville neighborhood, you will find the highest concentration of historic buildings in Mississauga. This village has an interesting history to it. In 1818, a man named Timothy Street was given the task of surveying the final acquired tract along the banks of the Credit River that was ceded to the British Government.

In return, Mr. Street was granted 1,000 acres of land in the new township, which in 1824 became known as Streetsville. The backbone of the new community was its five major mill sites located along a five-mile stretch of the fast-flowing Credit River. By 1850 Streetsville was recognized as "Queen of the County".

Make sure you spend time in Streetsville while on holiday. A balance of historical reverence and the array of present-day retail shops and services make Streetsville the most inviting Village in the City of Mississauga.

CUCHULAINN'S IRISH PUB

Stop in for a pint at this popular meeting place found at158 Queen Street South, in Streetsville. United Empire Loyalist John Barnhart built this frame house as a wedding gift for his daughter Minerva and her husband William H. Patterson. It's interesting that the generous Barnhart gave each of his children houses upon their marriages, but this is the only one that survives.

Today, it is a popular Irish pub, boasting to be the only authentic Irish pub in the village. You can find a menu of typical pub food, as well as live music from local and regional bands many evenings.

CASA LA BOUTIQUE

In the Streetsville area, you'll find a historic shop called Casa La Boutique, formerly known as Casa Mobilia. Built in 1821, the building currently serves as a vendor of unique décor and gifts; but it has an interesting story to it. United Empire Loyalist John Barnhart founded and built this trading post/store, dubbing it "Montreal House." His nephew, journalist Solomon Barnhart, printed the publication Streetsville Review from the second floor from 1857-66. Drop by to see jewelry being crafted by hand! It's open on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be found at 208 Queen Street South, Streetsville.
