City Fort Erie, Ontario
Location # 4802

A picturesque raised foundation and various other farm remains near the side of the road. Masonry inscriptions on the property read "Andre Sider - Fred Massey - June 15 1909". Not sure whether these are property owners or concrete contractors of the day.

Although the property is not posted, the original driveway runs mouth-to-mouth with another very active farm. If investigating the site, it may be a good idea to ask permission from this neighbour first, as it appears to perhaps be a multi-generational farmstead.

Although OAP discourages posting foundations, barns, etc. this property may have some historic value and there are certainly enough large machinery-type items left in or near the remains to warrant some interest. Please send private mail if you have any details to add.

ground state Actually Google Earth shows a house on the property a bit to the south but it was gone today. I could not even find a house foundation it was removed so effectively. And I figure GE terrain photos are - what? - 3 years old maybe at the most?
