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.

ground state My 2nd time through your gallery and I can't help but feel that there is so much life in this place. The personalized cards, the sketch pad; I would love to see every page of that book. This is a true gem of a location. Looks like this place would take an overnight trip with a sleeping bag to truly take it all in.
