    Snyder-Seagram 
    • The Snyder-Seagram House was designed by an American architect for Herbert Snyder, the owner of Snyder Bros. Furniture. It was built in 1903 by Charles Moogk, the Engineer for the Town of Waterloo.
      The impressive Edwardian house is interesting primarily because of its poured concrete construction. Other characteristics include the Palladian window located in a large dormer on the facade, a collection of bay windows and the curved verandah. Many of the windows still contain the original leaded glass. The beveled edges of these windows refract the sun's rays into a spectrum of colours.
      Edward F. Seagram, son of distilling magnate Joseph E. Seagram, purchased the house in 1929 and presented it as a wedding gift to his son J.E. Frowde Seagram. Upon the death of his father, Frowde Seagram, who was already President of Canada Barrels and Kegs Limited, became President of the family's distillery and assumed control of the famous Seagram racing stables. Over the years, horses carrying the distinctive black and yellow Seagram colours captured twenty King's and Queen's plates.
      The Snyder-Seagram house is designated a Heritage Landmark because of its historical and architectural significance. All of the elevations, with the exception of the one facing east, received recognition. It is currently the office of Dr. Peter Wyshynski1a
