|Object Type||Property File|
|Scope & Content||
Formerly the location of late 18th century wooden tenements, the site of 34-38 Chalmers Street was purchased in 1816 by the owner of the adjacent property, Dr. William Wightman. Wightman left these properties to his free black daughter Jane Prevost (Wightman). The 3½-story brick building at 34 Chalmers Street was constructed after 1850 with the purchase of the lot by the blacksmith Benjamin McInnes. It remained a smith's shop and livery stable until the early years of the 20th century and continues in the hands of his descendants.
