Built before 1807 by John Cox, an ex-soldier turned storekeeper, and is considered one of the oldest houses in Toronto still occupying the original lot. It was built as a three-bay cabin, with a central door flanked by two windows. The door originally faced south towards the lake, but it was changed in the 1800s to face the west.
