Continuing our weekend tour of the 905 we went to the “Markham Heritage Estates,” a “sanctuary of last resort” for historic homes that were threatened by development. It is a strange, strange place. Old homes each set on suburban-sized lots, on a couple of interconnected cul-de-sacs, with paved driveways and basketball nets, removed from their original context. If not a heritage version of the Truman Show, then there’s something David Lynchian about it all. Not unpleasant. Just strange. More pics of other houses, along with some history of each, in the above link. The house here is the Udell-Hamilton House, built in 1850.
