Miche This place still sits with no noticeable work being done. Such a shame. Looks like it was such a nice house at one point.

meggill I was at this location April 2013. The porch is now removed but the city of Richmond Hill has temporarily stopped demolition because the developer failed to obtain a building permit to demolish.

maple Just came back from walking my dogs and am sad to say, this house is in the process of being torn down. All out buildings are currently gone (including the silo) and the house is now started.

Kenndruuh Cool house but definitely good that it's boarded up. The obvious reason for abandonment was a house fire which burned mostly the walls from what I noticed. It was very dark inside and hard to take pictures, but none the less a cool explore. Some parts of the floor have become a little more unstable, so please be careful!
