Donald A. McLean House - Digital Archive

The Digital Archive and complementary Interactive Heritage Register Map are initiatives to provide historical information regarding properties included on the Township’s Heritage Register. The Digital Archive only includes properties which have consented to include their heritage property on this archive.

We recognize that when the first Euro‐Canadian settlers arrived in what is now Puslinch Township, the Anishinaabe ancestors of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation had long established hunt camps in the area. Through written and verbal accounts we understand that the Anishinaabe interacted with the settlers in a friendly and cooperative manner. It is acknowledged that the development of the Township encroached upon their traditional way of life resulting in their displacement.

Biographical Info

The Donald A. McLean House was completed in 1920. The two-storey rural Edwardian residence was initially built with limestone from the fields around 1890, and an upper-level was added around 1920, also in the Edwardian style. The residence has cement lintels.

Peter McLean originally purchased Lot 31 for 75 pounds per 100 acres. McLean had emigrated from Perthshire, Scotland to settle in Badenoch.

The property is historically associated with McLean family immigration from Perthshire as well as the settlement and community of Badenoch.
