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 Access Ferndale farms.... I have known about this place for years! The story goes as fallows, there was apparently two wills, one says its left to the family and the other one says to the conservation. I Use to work for Conservation Halton over 4 years ago and we use to maintain the driveway in the winter months for emergency services. I am unsure if they have every come to an agreement.

Birgitty What an amazing looking home. I lived in Burlington for a long time and my school bus went right past this house, I never would have guessed it was empty. Does anyone know if it's still boarded up? I'd love to try and get in there to take some pictures.

codi_7 Went there today with my mom, finally got to explore the whole house. I took my mom because this place reminds me of my grandmothers how's a lot, and my mom notice too before I even said anything, the fake flowers and the organized hoarding of family stuff I felt like I was at my omi's mouse

Unknown user Any member that's viewed this location can be shown, and without coordinates or revealnig data I think that it's simply circumstance. The timing does seem to be questionable as this place has been abandoned for many years but if a member can find it on his own, so could a scrapper.

timekeeper I'm glad you got in codi, great pics thanks for sharing them and your experience.

timekeeper I saw that in my research too..but I purposely didn't post that pic of her for fear that it would give away the location. I guess that didn't matter because the wrong person found the place out.

doom vs Then it's gone. I'll be posting soon when I can find the bloody time which seems like never right now. You'll see where it was for sure.

codi_7 I drove up the whole thing I park right next to the house. My car the only one on the property

doom vs The big boat of a car was in cut grass in clear view as you approached up the driveway. I think there was another one off to the left a bit into the field.
