Some of the oldest buildings in the City of Brantford were constructed in the Terrace Hill neighbourhood which is bounded on the south side by the CN railway tracks. There are many buildings that were erected in the early 1800s including the residence at 15 Wynarden Court which was built in 1864 by Henry Yates and was known locally as the Wynarden or “Yates Castle.” Henry Yates was instrumental in developing the great Western railway which was later bought by the Grand Trunk Railway and finally by CN rail.
The areas around Terrace Hill, Dundas Street, Usher Street etc. form the older section of Terrace Hill area. When traveling up current day West Street you come to a more recently developed area comprising of homes built in the early to mid 1900s. Styles include one-storey residences, one and a half storey homes, two stories side splits dwellings etc.
The Terrace Hill neighbourhood is bounded on the north by Highway 403, on the east is West Street. Many first time home buyers find this section of the city attractive due to its central location, proximity to Highway 403, shopping, schools, public transit, but most importantly affordable housing.
The Brantford General Hospital and Brantford County Health Unit are located on Terrace Hill Street.
