Port Colborne Ontario - Canada - Thomas Euphronius Reeb House - Heritage - 1907

Erected in 1907, the Romanesque Revival style Thomas Euphronius Reeb House, is a two-storey red brick structure with a veranda and octagonal tower. The house dominates the residential space of its surroundings and is located at 380 King Street in Port Colborne.
The Thomas Euphronius Reeb House is associated with one of the earliest families to settle in the area, the Reeb family. Before being under the ownership of the Reeb family, the property was part of a parcel of land that once belonged to William Hamilton Merritt, one of Upper Canada's most prominent and well-known citizens. Merritt was a successful merchant, fought as a captain in the War of 1812, and was a valuable promoter of the construction of the Welland Canal. In 1907 Thomas Euphronius Reeb, a lime-burner and son of John Reeb, purchased the land to erect the present building for residential purposes. The house is also associated with John Horne Jr., a well-known developer and councilman, who purchased the property in 1941 and converted the house into a series of apartments, to be occupied by teachers at the local school, and later by the Red Cross.
