History

The Miller Lash Estate is nestled in the picturesque valley of the village of Highland Creek. As legend has it, in 1913 Miller Lash, a wealthy Toronto businessman was out for a Sunday drive in his chauffeur driven Stanley Steamer. The car bounced along what is now known as Old Kingston Road, and descended the west hill into the valley of Highland Creek. Lash was so impressed by the land with its grassy fields, forest and rushing stream, that he promptly bought the property. He commissioned a firm of architects from Upper New York State, likely that of Edward B. Greene, to design his estate. The design is very much in keeping with the craftsman principals of the Arts and Crafts Movement.… Simplicity, durability, fitness for the life that is to be lived in the house and harmony with its natural surroundings.
