William Murphy House

William Henry Murphy operated a cartage (moving and/or hauling) business that also sold ice.  The family was active in the early Britannia Village in a variety of ways, including with the old Methodist (later United) Church. The house was built in 1902 at 127 Britannia Road and is a  designated heritage property. 1
