Have Your Next Party at the Franklin

become part of history of this house

The Franklin House was built in 1855 by William Graydon and Peter Douglas. It was originally built as the private residence of Peter Douglas, who in 1859 went on to sell it to Bennet Franklin, a partner in Barber Brother’s Toronto Woollen Mills. In 1877 the building was converted to a Hotel and then to a Public House which in 1910 under new owndership was renamed “Queens Hotel”. In 1927 it ceased to operate as a hotel with the enforcement of the Canada Temperance Act but has continued to be used for commercial purposes. The building is said to have escaped demotion in 1979 Thanks to the citizens who wanted to preserve history and heritage. Today The Franklin House is designated and protected under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act.

In 2008 “The Franklin House” opened it’s doors again, carrying on the tradition and paying tribute to the original building and it’s history. It attracts not only the locals from Streetsville but guests come from all over Mississauga and GTA. Whether it is a night out with friends at the bar or you want to book our private hall for a special event or spend a summer afternoon at the patio, Franklin House and Jessie await you.
