Notes
Strathmore, as it was called, was the home of Judge George M. Clark, whose wife was a daughter of William Weller. He sold the estate in 1904 to Charles Donnelly, a Pittsburg steel magnate, who remodeled and enlarged it. This building was an example of the style known as Beaux Arts Classical, popular in the U.S.A., at the close of the 19th century. In 1914 the house was taken over by the Haas family from Toronto, who then owned it till the mid 1940s when they sold it to the Ontario government. Strathmore is now part of the Brookside Training School
