Map of Glen Cairn

History:
In March of 1793, Governor Simcoe, his aides and Jack Sharp (the family Newfoundland Dog) camped overnight at the Westminster Ponds the evening before they hiked down to the forks of the Thames in the Village of London. House construction began in the village of Chelsey Green (Adelaide Street, south of the river Thames) in the late 1800's and continued development and expansion through WWII. During this time the area between Wellington and Highbury saw a lot of action during the Rebellion of 1837 while farmers revolted as they listened to William Lyon MacKenzie at Swartz's Tavern.  The Guthrie House (formerly Swartz's Tavern), located on Commissioners at the west border of Glen Cairn, was where the Home Children from England were sent during WWII.

Architectural Styles:
Architectural styles in this area reflect the many eras ranging from ornate Victorian to modern construction.
