Homes in Lambton
Lambton contains some charming workmans cottages near Dundas Street that date back to the mid to late 1800's. These tiny houses were built for the mill workers and their families. The apartment building at 4075 Old Dundas Street was built on the footplate of the old Lambton Grist Mill.
The "Valley" in the Warren Park school area still contains a small number of workmans cottages and a few of the old market gardener homesteads. However the bulk of the housing stock in "the Valley" consists of semi-detached brick houses built in the 1950's and 1960's. Many of these homes back onto parkland and command excellent vistas of the Humber River.
The Lambton Park houses north of Dundas Street and south of Foxwell Avenue were built largely in the early 1900's by employees of the railroad. The houses in the Foxwell Avenue area east of the Lambton Golf and Country Club, were built after World War II and feature some of the prettier brick and stone Tudor bungalows in the city.
