History:

The only little bit of history on this House and farm come from the land owner who grew up there. The chap now in his 80's told me the farm was built in the early 1900's by his mum and dad and they had all lived there as a family. The house however is now owned by an old friend of his and they both disagree upon the outcome of the buildings, so it stands now boarded up with nature taking it back. A nice little story from Morris was his dad once dug a well in the back yard. He dug out 1 foot per day for 23 days. Then he stuck in a piece of dynamite no longer than his index finger that looked like a "turd", stuck a 2 ton rock on top of it and walked 30 feet up the field before blowing it. It blew that big that another 8 ft shaft within the hole was made, the 2 ton rock lifted over 30 foot in the air and he blew all the back windows out of the house! its safe to say his wife wasn't impressed and he had to have a woodbine to calm down after. Amazing.
