Ponsonby began as a small community around 1840 known originally as Thorpville. It was an overnight stop for stagecoach travellers heading to the Queen's Bush.

A post office opened in 1853.

By the 1860's Ponsonby had a hotel, general store, blacksmith shop and wagon shop. The post office moved into the general store in 1853.

doom vs Roll it. Same scenario as the green and white house in Melancthon. The little cemetery across the road is included with the house.

trailblazer519 Ah so he does, didn't think to look there, figured it was just about a hotel. Will leave it up to the admins to decide what to do.
