Arne’s house was constructed around 1850. He lived along Leslie Street in Aurora, Ontario in a fairly undeveloped area.
Arne raised racing horses and founded two other horse farms in Ontario. I explored this property on a long weekend in August of 2013. At the time the house was filled with original items and you could call it a ‘time capsule’. Arne was born in 1924, and passed away in 1998.
I’m uncertain if the house had been abandoned for the last 15 years. It’s likely that the house was still being used because the electricity was working. There were signs of water damage as you can see below.
The device above is used for horses. I’m not certain what function it performs.
The room above was a separate part of the property. I believe this was the ‘stable boys’ living area. It contained a living room and bedroom area. This was located behind the main house.
By December of 2013 the entire property was town down, now only memories remain.
