Dundonald House, 35 Dundonald Street, Toronto, now graces a portion of an historical land plot extending west to Yonge Street from the Community Centre at 519 Church Street. Originally all that acreage was owned by one man, Mr. Donald Mackay (1813-1909) president of Gordon, Mackay & Co., Wholesale and Dry Goods, Haberdashery and Woolens.
In 1900 Mackay's business was located at the corner of Front and Bay street, but his private residence was situated on property now the site of Dundonald House. A century ago, Mackay's home address was 591 Yonge Street since Dundonald Street, which connects current-day Church and Yonge Streets, had not yet been built.
Mackay christened his family mansion "Dundonald," a combination of "dun" from Scots and Irish Gaelic meaning "castle," and his first name, thus "Castle Donald." Dundonald House, though now thoroughly modernized, still retains much of Castle Donald's original--and historical--identity.
