Sadly this historic home on Mississauga Road, which sat abandoned and boarded up for months, has met it's fate. It was recently torn down to make way for a new subdivision. Virtually no trace or hint of the homes existence remains, it's foundation neatly backfilled to match the surrounding muddy fields. 153 years is a long time for a home to stand. I was inside the house in 2009, and it showed no real need for repair, and appeared to be very well cared for. I'm keeping a close watch on the other homes in the immediate area, which may meet the same fate. This home was profiled in my book, Abandoned Ontario. Only photos and memories remain.
Abandoned Ontario public blog, discussing Abandoned Houses in Ontario
Official public blog post of Abandoned Ontario. Features abandoned houses in Simcoe County, Grey County, Dufferin County and Peel region. Bruce County and Huron County just added! Also includes Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville. Visit my website www.abandonedontario.ca
What started out as a hobby became a passion, and resulted in over 3000 images of Abandoned Houses in Ontario Canada. The Abandoned Ontario book was published in late 2009 and has been a great success! Please feel free to share and post your thoughts and comments here.
