Name of creator
Dr. Wilfred G. Reive and Mabel M. Reive (nee Little) lived in 33 Brock Street, Kitchener, until the early 1950s. In 1950, the family needed a location close and equidistant to the two local hospitals and purchased a lot of land at 178 Claremont Avenue, Kitchener. They chose local architect Theophilus Hughes Wells for designing their house, Guelph landscape architect Roland Barnsley for the gardens, and hired local construction companies for the construction work. The Reive family moved to 178 Claremont Avenue in 1951, before the construction was finished, and lived in it until 2015.
