The William Mulock Room
Farmer, Lawyer and Justice
Sir William Mulock, a farmer, lawyer, educator, and businessman. He was a liberal Member of Parliament (1882 to 1905), Postmaster General (1896 to 1905), Chief Justice of the Exchequer (1905-1923) and Chief Justice of Ontario (1923-1936).
Room 105 is likely named after him since Judge Mahaffy bought a solid oak bedroom set belonging to Mulock in his role as Postmaster General. Likely between 1896 and 1905, the Judge bought an oak sleigh bed, washstand, tear-drop mirror and a roomy chest of drawers for his master bedroom.
Room 105 was considered the Judge’s room by most owners of the Inn. However, analysis of multiple photos from Sarah Mahaffy’s photo album suggest that the mentioned furniture was not in Room 105 in the time period 1890s to about 1917, this was Sarah’s room from the 1890s.
The photos display large quantities of Sarah’s photos and memorabilia in Room 105, it would have left little room for the Judge.
The Judge and Sarah may have initially resided in this master suite now Rooms 105 and 106.
