Description

Built in 1822 as the Potter & Matheison Foundry, this building once produced nuts & bolts. In the 1870's it produced farming equipment. In 1874 the building was damaged by fire. In 1916 the building was purchased by John Mundell who transformed it into "Mundell Kiddy Kar & Furniture Factory". In 1979 the factory was used as a set in the movie "An American Christmas Carol" starring Henry Winkler. It was gutted by a fire shortly after.

I love this place. I go walking there a lot. Very annoying when teenagers camp out there, though.

I walked through this building a few times. It was used in the 1979 movie “An American Christmas Carol” as a furniture workshop, This made for TV movie that was filmed all over Elora and stared Henry Winkler “Yes, Fonzie was here” This building was burned down in the movie and I guess that only the shell remains. You can see the Elora Mill in the background across the river in some scenes of th

Great structure ~ as mentioned.
It could be brought back - utilizing the outward as a framework & rebuild & reinforce for integrity.
