First Occupant:
Magloire de Laplante

OTHER IDENTIFICATION
Notes:

29 Homewood Avenue was constructed in 1879.

 

29 Homewood Avenue was first home to Magloire de Laplante (1837-1905) and family. Magloire de Laplante (also spelled Delaplante or de la Plante) was born in St. Pierre in 1837. He was a prominent lumberman who operated lumber businesses and mills in Toronto. De Laplante also constructed numerous homes in Toronto and is the eponym of Laplante Avenue (near Bay Street and College Street). De Laplante was married twice and had 2 sons. The family was Roman Catholic. He died in Toronto in 1905. His widow - Theresa de Laplante - continued living at 29 Homewood Avenue until 1912. 

 

Prior to living at 29 Homewood Avenue, the De Laplantes resided at neighbouring 27 Homewood Avenue between 1873 and 1879. Magloire de Laplante's son - Albert de Laplante - also resided at 31 Homewood Avenue during the late 19th century.

 

It is probable - although further research is required to verify - that De Laplante built 27 and 29 Homewood Avenue.  

 

Of additional note is that 29 Homewood Avenue is very similar to the former cottage at 51 Homewood Avenue. 51 Homewood Avenue was demolished during the mid-to-late 20th century.
