This is the Carrique family property. William and Margaret emigrated from Ireland in the early 1800's & raised 6 kids. They lived in a brick 1 1/2 story house that was built in 1852. With the passing of both William & Margaret in the 1870's one of their son's, Henry, inherited the property. He and his wife, Sarah Ann, also had 6 kids & raised them on this property.

Despite the fact the property no longer has a house on it, it is still listed as a Property Of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest. "This property has potential cultural heritage value for its historic farmstead, including the outbuildings, historically associated with the agricultural development of Trafalgar Township."

There is an area which I assume to be an old foundation for the previous house. The two outbuildings look like two small barns. The smaller of the two looks very old & may have been built with the original house in the mid 1850's. There are a bunch of Beekeeper boxes in the front of the smaller barn & some boxes and parts inside. The larger of the two barns is a Gambrel Style & does not look quite as old as the smaller barn. There are a bunch of cages in this barn. I was trying to figure what they kept there, chickens, pigeons, dogs? There wasn't really anything that was tell tale to me. I would have said they were for breeding dogs, but there were elevated cubicles that I assume were for something that could either fly or levitate.

This property is located in an area designated for Employment Land. This is some very expensive land, there is just over 30 acres for sale 1 KM east of this property for $13,000,000. So, I would be VERY surprised if the barns continue to exist or if the property will be anyway recognizable in the near future.

When I went back a second time during the day, there was no one upstairs. It was probably just someone visiting as there were no signs of a squatter.
If you go I'd advise a respirator because of all the chicken droppings, feathers and dead chickens. Avian flue does not sound like a fun time.

Me and two friends went into the stables and kept hearing clunks coming from upstairs. We thought it was just an animal until we got half way down the hall and we heard loud foot steps of someone walking around upstairs. We left the barn and noticed that there were fresh foot prints in the snow going towards the barn but none leading away.
