Scope and content

This house is located at 139 John St. West (on the northwest corner of John and Essa Streets). It was built in the 1900’s by carpenter Dalt Coburn. Originally, there was a laneway behind the house that ran west to Toronto St. and a vacant lot next door. The 1½-storey, frame house had many gables. There was a fire here at one time. Dalt raised his family (including son Des) here before moving to Cookstown in the early 1930’s. James Pelovich and his son Jim lived here in 1935. Later George Sadovchuk and his mother (Stephanie Semenuk Sadovchuk) lived here. Stephanie was James Pelovich's mother. George remodelled the house extensively. The veranda at the top was removed and the brick was matched. (1, 2)
