This is just a stone foundation which is nearly invisible to passers by, except when on foot. Just a few meters off the North West side of the road stands a wall as well as some sort of below ground level cistern.

I believe this was the barn, and the actual house foundation is close by, just off the trail opposite the rusted out car. You can easily see the stone gate posts which would have marked the entrance to the property off Twyn Rivers as that is the entrance to Rouge Park's Orchard Trail.

The abandoned car is along a more Westward path branching off from the Orchard Trail, which probably would have belonged to the last owners of the property. It is the remains of a 1951 Kaiser Sedan, which was a classy car at the time.

So far, all I've found in the area are the barn, house, car exterior and frame.
