This is a long-abandoned home rotting on what was once Highway 11. The current highway runs 100m south of this property, on the other side of a swamp. There is little evidence that this was ever a road. The house is very simple, pioneer-style with a wood stove. It has been abandoned for many decades. The roof and floor have long ago rotted away, leaving behind the skeletal frame and the remains of some outer walls. This property is located along the original route surveyed by Simon Dawson in 1858 that linked the Great Lakes to the prairie provinces.
