This brick classic revival-designed building was built in 1911.
The historic Maple Leaf Gate House had suffered from years of deterioration. The small structure is set on a high brick base over a concrete foundation.
The structure features a hipped roof lined with an elaborate terra-cotta cornice adorned with solid modillion blocks and corners embellished with fluted terra-cotta pilasters. An intermediate cornice above the brick base appears to visually support the corner pilasters.
The structure had seen many alterations over the years, including several windows that had been infilled with concrete.
