On the north side of Elgin Mills Road East, just east of Kennedy road, you will come across this unique looking farmstead, sitting in plain view, down a long treed laneway.
Concession 6, lot 26, was settled by Frederick Quantz. Fred had married Margaret Puterbough and the couple had ten children. Margaret died in 1854, and Fred wed a Mrs Mary Lundy, with which he had another two children. This would certainly explain the need for such a large house. ;)
