Description
The best way I can describe to get here, would be to go to Creekside Church in Waterloo. Park in the very back of the parking lot and look into the bush and you can see the top of the silo from there.

This is a pretty interesting spot. My favorite part are the metal corrals out back of the silo. There seemed to be two foundations of old houses. One was right beside the silo and was was a little further up the trail. There was also the reddish coloured shed back there, as well as what looked like an old stone fire place.

A word of caution ~ there were quite a few shot gun shells when I was back there, so if you go take a look please be careful.
I ended up emailing the church to ask them if they knew anything about the history of the land they were located on, or the property with the silo directly behind them. There were kind enough to forward my email to a lady who lives right beside the property. She has lived there for sixy years. Her Father had previously owned many parcels of land in the area. She told me who the current owner was, where he currently lives and that this is a separate deed from the property his house is on now. I have tried to contact him with out any luck yet.

This lady has told me that when the land was farmed a Mennonite man named Leander Clemmer and his family owned it. Through the 1950's and into the early 60's. After that it was rented out and never maintained very well.

I am trying to find out some more information about the original buildings. Also planning to go back to get some better pictures. I would like to get some closer shots of certain things, as I was in a rush because the people whom I was with were all paranoid! The original address for the spot was RR# 3, in the township and county of Waterloo.
