On Broadview Avenue, south of Gerrard Street East, stands this house. Attached to the wall, near the bottom of the drainpipe, is this 2013 Heritage Toronto plaque produced with the Riverdale Historical Society. Here's what it says:
Coordinates: 43.66410 -79.35194
Architect J. Francis Brown designed this house in the Queen Anne Revival style for Dr. Garon Cleland. In 1959, it was converted into a seniors residence operated jointly by the Toronto Housing Authority and by St. Matthew's Anglican Church. The house was later used by other community service providers.
