The Sisters of St. Joseph not only ran the House of Providence for the elderly but also took in orphan children and nursed those who suffered from a variety of illnesses. While a Catholic institution, the facility became a community resource, which served people of all faiths. The work and charity of the Sisters was complemented with generosity from the citizens of Dundas and area who continuously demonstrated a great working relationship between the House of Providence, civic leaders and local townspeople. The original building was practically destroyed by fire in 1900 and was reconstructed in just one year.
The House of Providence was replaced in 1970 with the construction of a new and modern building renamed St. Joseph's Villa. The House of Providence, after a second fire, was demolished in 1971.
In 2002, St. Joseph's Villa began a transformation with the construction of two new additions and renovations to the existing building to meet the overall needs of seniors coming to the Villa today and tomorrow.  In 2005 the final move of residents to the new building was completed.

Cheers,

Thanks chinapaddy for finding those photos of the House of Providence.  The photo with the date of 1902 shows the building where Matthew Truran would have been cared for in his final days.

That seems to wrap up this thread now, thanks to all who helped me.
