Gorham-College Manor History: One of the main roads in this neighbourhood is Srigley Street which runs directly between Prospect Street and Leslie Street. It is named after Robert Srigley who came from Pennsylvania to the Niagara district about 1788. After moving to Newmarket he purchased a farm east of the Holland River soon after 1900. His farm laneway is now Srigley Street. Robert donated the northeast corner of Prospect Street and Timothy Street from his farm to the community as the site for its first public school.

Both Robert and his wife, Jane Heacock, are buried in the Quaker cemetary on Yonge Street south of Davis Drive. They had sixty grandchildren.

Another interesting item regarding Gorham-College Manor concerns another Newmarket pioneer, Isaac Stickwood. He purchased property on the north side of Srigley Street and started the Stickwood Brickyard. The first bricks were manufactured in 1860, and were used in the construction of many buildings including Trinity United Church on Main Street and the Old Town Hall on Botsford Street. Stickwood Court on the north side of Srigley Street is named after Isaac.

 

Gorham-College Manor Real Estate: The part of this neighbourhood north of Gorham Street seems like an extension of Central Newmarket in that there are a great many heritage and century homes clustered here around Fairgrounds Park and north to Southlake Regional Health Centre.

Newer detached homes were built in the early 1990's to the east of this mature neighbourhood around streets like Manning Crescent and Wildwood Drive, and were considered quite attractive for the time.

Eventually, newer homes still, were constructed south of Gorham Street around College Manor Drive just east of Pickering College. This Wycliffe subdivision has many attractive, detached homes, and allows for easy access to Highway 404 along Mulock Drive.

Freehold townhomes sprang up as well along Bondi Avenue, Legresley Lane and Ainsworth Drive. Condo townhomes kept pace at Bogart Pond at the northwest corner of Leslie Street and Mulock Drive, and in the locale just to the north around William Curtis Circle.
