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.

codi_7 i could be wrong from the look of it was the car about perpentular to the garage or was it in the field near the shed. i didn't go up there as it didn't seem intresting and there was a concrete pad right by the garage so i assumed that was where the car was.

doom vs The car is gone too? It was there just last Tuesday! Huh, seems this place is on a fast decline. RnR noticed some changes in the small time in between his visits.

codi_7 the lawn mower is gone the car is gone. and the place was a mess. i heard some russling upstairs so i didn't venture up there. but its like night and day from R&R and Phrenzees pictures vs mine. like a bomb exploded...

doom vs I was there not even a week ago. When I get around to posting we can see if there is a difference in the level of mess and whatnot. In codi's pics there does seem to be new vandalism.

timekeeper I know Dallas, it's pretty concerning...or its coincidence. I really don't think any of my descriptions of the place gave its location away, nor do I think the few people who I gave the location address to had anything to do with it....unfortunately this is a part of dealing with what we do :(

doom vs I wish they had taken the damned cat hair and barf and other cat waste products with them. I came out half covered in cat hair!

ground state Cool cremation certificate Phrenzee! There must be so much more waiting to be discovered here with each person's explore. A different drawer, a different envelope opened. Seems like an exciting place.

timekeeper I do think they were using the newspaper to wrap whatever items they were taking. Given the state of the place and the many personal items that were still there, combined with the cardboard boxes we found, newspapers and what I noticed to be gone..it was no doubt scrapped. And look at Phrenzee's pics..the light fixtures were there, and yesterday they were gone.

doom vs Yup, and the newspaper from June 2012 was just a tad odd, eh RnR? Maybe the scrappers took a break to catch up on the news.

timekeeper Guys, what Adriana saw was scrappers - while someone is indeed tending the lawn here, this place is definitely abandoned and just left to rot. I went yesterday and everything is still there, except the sink, light fixtures etc.

Adriana We went here to explore today, got up the driveway, and noticed a white pick up moving in the grass around the back where the garage is. We turned around and got out there. As we were driving down the road and looked back, we saw that a trailer was hitched on the back of the truck. Not sure if it's the owners clearing out....or someone else there clearing out, stealing!

Golson Moldon Man, any kid growing up in that place would have some serious issues! Nice find.

timekeeper Thanks PCB and everyone else. This place gave me a serious explore hangover, I came home mentally exhausted, I had a whole day of exploring planned but after this one..I knew that no other explore would top that place, so I called it a day and retired home for Jack & Coke's and a Son's of Anarchy marathon whilst writing up my post and editing my pics.
