Woodstock 1940's House

Discovered by infinitedimentia
Created Nov 10 2010
Recent status Demolished
Category House Or Farm
City Woodstock, Ontario
Location # 2136

The house 911 # is 683908 and there is a gate, so you(a)ll have to park on the road. As of Nov 10/10, there is a small barn that looked to have housed small animals, a large hay barn and the house. The morning I went there is was very dark and foggy, so I did not enter as the house was very dark inside. From what I could tell, there is garbage srewn all over that would hide any weak spots in the floor, so bring a decent flashlight. The building itself looks to be structurally unsafe so take caution if you enter. I plan to go back with another person and a flashlight. OAP notes: Very interesting reading upstairs. Newspapers from the 1930(a)s make some of the memories here 81 years old.

Unknown User And thus the importance of documenting the past before it's gone and then posting it online for others to see.

ladyoftheflowers Drove by on the weekend and thought the barns looked extra bare. Got closer to the house and found a bulldozer and no house. Demolished. :( So disappointing!

ladyoftheflowers Oh, I should also mention - I have never been attacked so badly by mosquitos in my life than when I came to this house. The grass has grown to be taller than myself, and every thing you brush up against causes probably 50 more mosquitos to attack you. It's a lovely location, but I won't be visiting in the summer months ever again :P despite all the interesting finds inside. Trust me, it was bad.

ladyoftheflowers Thanks for that info, theurbantrailblazer. I figured something like that went on there by what I found inside. Also, as of recently it seems at least one turkey vulture has made one of the upper rooms his home. Please be kind and careful if you plan to visit anytime soon. Not sure if he'll be there all the time, but I visited this place twice in one month and he was there both times.

theurbantrailblazer There were several animal bones around the property. Not sure if the people who lived here last were relatives of the owner's or not but they had no idea of how to look after the animals and in the end were allegedly charged with Neglect and Animal Cruelty. It is believed the woman here had an intellectual disability and people don't think she puposely negleted the animals rather it was too mu
