The Grange, located in the historical Robinson-Adamson House, tells its unique story through the many fascinating characters who have owned it over the years. Built for the first Chief Justice of Upper Canada, Sir John Beverley Robinson, the Ontario Regency-style architecture and high-quality craftsmanship supported the importance of this building to the area. Changing hands several times, The Grange was eventually deeded to the City of Mississauga in 1978 and restored. It was designated in 1982 as a significant historical and architectural landmark, and is today home to Heritage Mississauga.
