2015 Haro Street was the last house on the north side of Haro Street, at the corner of Haro Street and Park Road (later called Lagoon Drive). It appears to be the only house in the West of Denman area that was not strictly aligned with the street grid, probably to enhance the house’s views to Lost Lagoon.

Roderick Campbell, Junior built the house about 1904.

Legal Description: District Lot 185, Block 66, Lot 23.

Rod Campbell, Junior lived in the house until 1919.

In the 1920s and 1930s the house was a private home and then a rooming house.
