On Pickering(a)s 8th concession, just south of the Oak Ridges Moraine, a community developed in the area of the 6th sideline in the mid 1800s. In 1852, a group of people purchased an 82 by 78 fot lot on the southeast corner of lot 6 with the intent of building a church. Originally know as Jackson, a frame school was built here in 1852, as well as a church in 1856.

The school has since closed and is now used as a community centre. The small church still holds service every Sunday, but the community now only consists of a handful of large farms sprawled along the vast, rolling hill.

exploringhale None of these places are abandoned as that they are used by my family, the community centre is used for Craft shows, bridal showers, baby showers and other events, and the church is still used for services and the odd events liked wedding, etc

dtrigger Not sure where the previous comments came from, but as of yesterday (2014-09-11) the community centre (school house) is still standing. It's at 4230 Salem Rd, Pickering, just south of Alsar Farm. (see pictues above)

spydrgyrl Actually, the church is quite small - guess it's just the camera angle! The farm, however, is HUGE .. it looks like three houses that were built together! Apparently, a former NHLer owns it now ..
