Cooksville Mississauga Real Estate

Cooksville, Ontario

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cooksville is a former community of Ontario, Canada that is now part of the centre of the city of Mississauga. It was at the intersection of the former Highway 5 (Dundas Street) and Highway 10.

History

Cooksville was an important stage coach stop along the Dundas highway, which was carved out of the wilderness after a survey by Asa Danforth in 1798.

Jacob Cook, for whom the area is believed to be named, bought 100 acres (0.40 km2) at Dundas Street and Hurontario Street for $30 in 1819.

The entrepreneur won the contract to deliver the mail from York to Niagara, operated several stage coach lines, was the local magistrate and built the Cooksville House, the first licensed tavern in the area at the northwest corner of Dundas and Hurontario streets in 1829.

Cooksville grew in size and influence until the Great Fire of 1852 razed much of it. A tornado hit the area on June 24, 1923 destroying mostly rural farmhouses around the town. There was a 182 acre brickyard that sprawled south of the CP rail line from 1912 until its closure in 1995, employing many Cooksville residents over that period. The Italian Heavyweight champion boxer, Primo Carnera had worked at the yard for a short period during his youth. Today, the converted site is a medium density residential and retail zone along Shorline Dr., not far from the infamous 1979 Mississauga train derailment site at the CP crossing (Mavis & Dundas St. W.).

Cooksville was the residence of HIH Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia while in exile in Canada.

Cooksville Real Estate

Much of the growth that occurred in Mississauga in the 1960s before amalgamation was based around Cooksville. It is home to highest concentration of high-rise condominium and rental buildings in Mississauga, mostly on or close to Hurontario Street just south of the City Centre, many are home for newer immigrants to Canada. The area is also the main transportation hub in Mississauga, with GO Transit rail and bus service and express city buses to Toronto Union Station. The Mississauga Transit and GO Bus Terminal is adjacent to the north parking lot of the Square One Shopping Centre. The population of the area is highly diverse with people originating from all over the world, over half are visible minorities.(end wikipedia)
