Frederick Hubbard House 1909
Photos and transcription by contributor Wayne Adam - Posted October, 2014
This Heritage Toronto 2014 plaque, produced with the Riverdale Historical Society, can be found at 662 Broadview Avenue, 3 blocks south of Danforth Avenue. Here's what it says:
Coordinates: 43.674003 -79.356970
This residence was built for Frederick Langdon Hubbard, a chairman of the Toronto Transit Commission. It stands immediately north of the house belonging to his father, William Peyton Hubbard, the first Black politician elected in Toronto. The three-storey polygonal tower is a feature of the Queen Anne Revival style, while the brick work and the shingled gable with windows are characteristic of Edwardian Classicism.
