Heritage Value Statement
Built in 1911 for John W. and Edith Freethy, the residence is a very good example of a finely-detailed Craftsman Bungalow. The horizontal massing, full front verandah, tapered columns and scroll-cut vergeboards are typical features of this style.

Located within a grouping of superior historic buildings, the Freethy Residence speaks to the development of this area, after the turn of the 20th century, as a middle to upper income residential neighbourhood, a comfortable distance away from the busy commercial core and adjacent mixed-use neighbourhoods.

John Freethy was a clerk at Spencer’s Store.
