65 Welland was the work of the builder/architect team of Simon Black and Ralph I. Williams who were also responsible for three other houses on the north side of Welland Road and four more on Blake Road.

The first residents of this house were Benjamin and Frances Wilcon, who moved here from 1572 Beacon Street. Benjamin Wilson (1902-1985) was a broker. He and his wife Frances (1904-2001) were listed at this address from 1941 until the early 1960s.
