Sarah and Alexander Bain Petrie

Sarah and Alexander Bain Petrie

The Petries occupied the house from 1918 until 1922. Harold purchased the house on behalf of his father, Mr. Alexander Bain Petrie, who was one of Guelph, Ontario’s most successful manufacturers and business men. He founded the Petrie Manufacturing Co., which was originally established in Galt (now Cambridge, Ontario), and later carried on in Guelph and Hamilton, Ontario.

The company produced the Magnet Cream Separator and later the Magnet Gasoline Engine. Today a group from Guelph is working hard to preserve the Petrie Building on Wyndham Street North.
