Description
Peter Archdekin built this house in the 1860's. He was a relative of James (Jim) Archdekin, one of Brampton's most important Mayors from 1969 until his death in 1982. The Archdekin's came over from Ireland in the 1820's. They were among the first to settle in the area and established the Hamlet of Mayfield Village. It was originally located at the corner of Mayfield Rd and Dixie Rd. The village with a population of 50 became the center of the farming community. There was a general store, a school, a post office, a hotel and a blacksmith at the time. This Archdekin farmhouse is all that remains today from the original village. The restored home was officially unveiled here on May 3rd, 2014. Unfortunately there is no access inside. Nice to see this little bit of history on display.
