Arthur Currie House Ontario

Arthur Currie House Ontario

This was the home of Sir Arthur Currie, who was born in this house on December 5, 1875.

Sir Currie was educated in local common schools and at the Strathroy District Collegiate Institute. He also briefly attended the University of Toronto before moving to British Columbia in 1894.

Sir Currie led the 2nd Brigade of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces during key First World War battles at Ypres, Somme, Passchendaele and Vimy.

The house is located on a farmer’s field but you can park out of sight. There’s not much to see inside except for the stairway and the corner hutch. Local citizens would like to see the house saved and receive historic recognition but the elements have other plans.

The house is now demolished.
