Signs 2013

Back in February a group of us went out in the pouring rain and selected a number of Grandview’s wonderful houses to celebrate this year.  Then, a week or so ago, we delivered the signs to the householders who had agreed to join us in the celebration.

Now, here’s the map of the houses, 100+ years old, displaying our historic Grandview signs.

Select “View Larger Map” for details about each of the houses. Please send in any comments or additions to build the stories of these wonderful buildings.

We will be launching the signs with a party at 1:30pm on May 4th on Grandview Park opposite 1636 Charles Street.  More details to follow, but everyone is welcome to join us in this celebration of Grandview’s glorious heritage houses.

  1. Hello.
    I recently purchased a house located on 1876 Charles St (corner Victoria Dr) in the Grandview Woodland neighbourhood. I am interested obtaining any history or story on this house. Would you be able to help? Thank you for your help, Ja

  2. Yes, indeed. Your house (DL 264a, Block 46, Lot 12) was built by A. Harrison who is also listed as the owner on the building permit dated 14th April 1909. This was a frame house listed at $3,000 and the address on the permit was 1870 Charles; it was re-numbered soon after. The first resident in 1910 was Dr. Edward H. Saunders in 1910. He had his physician’s office at 203-207 W. Hastings Street.

  3. Hello,

    I’m interested in the history of my house at 2148 Graveley. It has seen a lot of changes, especially on the inside, some before my time, but most completed by myself. The pictures from realtors of the inside, (before renos) make it look like an italian villa, 1960’s vintage. Can you tell me some history of it?
