This was the home of Flora Fern Noak Miller. Flora was born in 1909 to Guy I.S. Miller and Laura Miller (nee Noak). The family most likely lived in Middlesex, Vermont. Flora had three other siblings, brothers Herbert and Irving and sister Grace. Her family moved to Quebec in 1914.

Flora married Simon Ernest McCullough in 1934.

Around 1970 Flora moved to Walker's Line and had a home constructed on her property. Now retired, she operated a hobby farm in which she raised horses, ducks and geese. By this time Flora was a senior citizen and sought assistance from the neighbours to clean the barn and to feed the animals. Some of the neighbours owned the horses that resided on the property.

Flora sought to build a second house on the property that was closer to the main road so that she wouldn't be snowed in during the winter. The old house would be given to a younger couple who would assist in the upkeep of the property which was slowly deteriorating.


Flora died in 1999 at the age of 90

The house and property are watched by Conservation Halton, They also maintain the driveway during the winter months.

No Word of A Lie. I'm really emotional looking at this location. Just so sad! Also, I fear I may be a future Flora...

This make me sad. What a beautiful house this must have been in it's prime. Fern seems like a lovely lady.

I'm so upset about this. I was literally just planning a road trip to this area to see this house in the next couple weeks. Why are people so violent and terrible?
