Branningham Grove, Owen Sounds famous Brothel owned by the famous Meg Matthews This and it's neighbouring houses are slated for demolition if the Developer gets his way. The house is in excellent condition and most recently was a Steak House. The house is tightly boarded up. Due to publid outcry, the building may be saved and designated Historical

Link to a storey about the history in the Owen Sound Sun Times:

The second house, is on the same property and I assumed scheduled for demolition. Again in good condition and access is available through the back door. The vandels haven't arrived yet!!!

I attached a good read about Meg Mathews in the links sections.

There is a fantastic report on this property (a Heritage Impact Statement) including the history of the property and some great historic photos on the Owen Sound website http://www.owensound.ca/planning/documents/Heritage_Impact_Assessment.pdf
