Wildfield Resident Seeking Photos of 2 Demolished Caledon Buildings

Former Loretto Convent
Written by Dan O’Reilly

This is an appeal to anyone who might have high resolution photos of two buildings that were once prominient landmarks in Wildfield.

Former heritage house

House formerly at 11962 the Gore Road

The Region of Peel and the City of Brampton are working on a plan to design and then erect an historic commemorative feature at the southwest corner of the Gore Road and Mayfield Road in Wildfield. It would commemorate a heritage house at 11962 the Gore Road, which was demolished last year and the former Loretto Convent which was demolished more than 50 years ago.

The Region/City are looking for photos of the house before the bricks were yellow. They are also hoping it would include a plaque with photos of both buildings. The photo they currrently have is “scan of a scan” which means the resolution isn’t very good.

I have attached the existing photos of both here. If anyone does have original or better quality photos, please contact me through Patti  at Just Sayin’ Caledon at
