Located on the south west corner of Giles & Victoria Avenue, is the former home of William Thomas Wesgate. Mr Wesgate built the large home in 1919 that is still standing today. He made his fortune as an ice cream manufacturer before selling his business to Borden Dairies in the late 1920s. He was originally an alderman with Ford City, becoming a member of the Board of Education after that.
