Description
The remenants of what was once known as the Georgian Lodge in Midland Ontario. This impressive wall is known as a dry stone wall and is now a Midland Heritage Site. The Century Home burnt down in the 1980's and the only reminder is the foundation and stone staircases surrounding the home.

Yes, I am compiling a list of places I want to see when spring gets here, and this one is on my list.

Doozer, there is still foundations left, amongst the gate and rock wall. Plenty to see, and a definite must see, for history buffs that live in the area. Check my photos, I was there last year.

I just uploaded some pictures I found. They are not mine, they came from the Huronia Museum, but I thought they would be of interest.

I just expored this area 2 days ago only to find the foundation filled in with back fill. There is hardly anything there to suggest an estate home. I was disappointed I didn;t get to see it before this happened. I also am from the area, and I have been trying to track down any pictures of the home before it burned. No luck.
I will upload my photos soon.

I grew up in this area but found very few people knew anything about the property. There was a rumour that the lot was left abandoned because the fire was suspicious, but I can't find confirmation of this anywhere. The lot has to be worth a fortune, does anyone know why there's never been another stately home built within the confines of this wall?
