  A Tea Room that is now a residential building

They called APPLE TREE INN establish c. 1858 (7053 Pond St.) a Tea Room because serving alcohol was illegal.

Luther Cheyne, who served as the village’s first postmaster in 1854, built this residence in 1858.
Throughout most of its existence, the structure has served as a private home. In 1920, however, Miss Yates and Miss Beardmore acquired the house and opened a tea room, which remained in business until 1944. The proprietors had the distinction of offering the only place in the village
where a visitor could find a room and refreshment after the prohibition movement had forced the closure of the other public houses in Meadowvale. During the summers of 1920 and 1921, the tea room catered to the students of the Ontario College of Art who traveled to the area to sketch and paint the local scenery. The Apple Tree Inn is now a private family dwelling.
