Beynon House

Discovered by timo explorer
Created Aug 01 2011
Recent status Demolished
Category House Or Farm
City Richmond Hill, Ontario
Location # 3005

One of the last remaining original farmhouses in this area. Most of the old farms have been developed, but because this sits on the Vaughan side of Bathurst Street, it will take slightly longer before it too is permanently removed in the name of progress.

According to the 1887 Canadian County Atlas, this was once the George Beynon farm.

The home is now listed for sale, however it is in such a state that is must be torn down, too far gone to be saved.

electricfuneral: The house is completely boarded and has suffered severe fire damage. One of the boards had a sign (that has fallen off) which reads: Funeral Steeles Memorial Chapel. The only POE would be through a second floor window, but seeing as the place does not look stable I wouldn't suggest trying to get in at all.

electricfuneral I was greeted by some chickens during my visit, so that was interesting to say the least.

vern_godlittle We checked this house out about two months ago for the first time; went back last night to take some pictures and it seems as if this house is finished. The doors have been freshly boarded up and the front porch and garage have been demolished. Tire tracks were seen leaving the driveway and going onto Bathurst, so it is likely this house is slowly being torn down. Such a shame, this one was great.

missdollanganger Something interesting about Beynon that I never mentioned: This house in 1997 was owned by a man named Victor L. Gregg, whose line of work had something to do with airplanes. (Which would explain the many flight magazines!)
