    How an electrician’s visit led to the discovery of Toronto’s oldest home

    Then, one day in the 1990s, a previous owner hired an electrician who opened a wall and found that it wasn’t made of red brick, like the other houses on the street, but of solid logs with a wood finishing.

    Research traced the house to John Cox, a Loyalist who was granted hundreds of acres of land east of the Don River in 1796.
