This old farm house, is located on Highway 7 between Rockwood and Guelph. There is a rest stop picnic area out front. House is up a hill thru the forest there is a driveway leading to the house. There was a body dumped there in 2005, they put a plaque out front of the rest stop for her. She is still unidentified. The house is pretty safe inside, although kids have trashed it. all doors are open and windows smashed. I believe it to be full of ghosts, I caught pictures with orbs with colours and tails. and a shadow in a window. Very spooky place to see. - the driveway to the house is right before the rest station entrance on the east side.

Added by mydea: Local folklore claims this to be the former home to the "Rockwood Murderer" Although unconfirmed, this legend possibly refers to the Willoughby Tragedy. A shocking murder was committed one morning early in Feb 1871 by a man named Charles Willoughby. Charles was a farmer residing a mile and half from Rockwood - the victim was his second wife, Margaret Moore. While under the influence of liquor he asked the unfortunate woman to rise and get him a drink of water, but as she did not comply with his request he sprang out of bed, grabed an axe, and struck her in the head, killing her almost instantly. Charles then tried various but unsuccessful attempts at suicide. He was subsequently arrested, went on trial and was found not guilty, on the grounds of insanity.

Teen house murderers have since taken refuge, and possibly the axe to this place, hidden down a long, overgrown lane that can be easily overlooked well passing by. All that remains in the house are a few newspapers and lots of graffiti left by someone that really likes to F sluts.

Added by Skye_Ann, June 2014: A quaint little house on a hill off the Hwy. It's incredibly trashed and gets worse seemingly every month. Nothing too special about it, other than the memorial on the property beside it. In 2005, A woman believed to be between the ages of 25-45 was found dead and covered by a sleeping bag in the forest nearby. The body has never been identified and there is a 50,000 reward out for anyone who can identify her.

ElectricEagle Although it's unfortunately laying on the ground now, the roof is still in pretty good shape! Still large parts of foundation left too.

Cerulean Yeah, it's really weird, eh? I stopped there yesterday. Even the shed looks like it's boarded up now. This would be an interesting place to set up trail cameras.

MacabreKiss It's sealed back up again - every single door and window is boarded. I'm totally confused as to what the heck is going on with this place. In October all the boards were ripped off and nowhere to be found, and now they're all back up again...

Bumblebee Just a heads up to explorers, it looks like someone had a temper tantrum and literally ripped every single board off this place spent 10 minutes here as I had never seen this place without boards on her.

Unknown user I have been researching the history on this location. It is considered Eramosa Township, Concession 2 lot 5 Civic address used to be #8149, The Eramosa archive department has information on the ownership but i have to get out there again to go thru it or pay to have them do it for me. Its way more fun to dig.
