I have spent the past few days researching our new house and have really enjoyed finding out some of the history behind it. I'm hoping that once we move in and begin some of the renovations that we have planned, we might find some more interesting hints to the past that will help to piece together more of this property's story.
The home has been featured in a few books, including Historic Homes and Estates - Port Perry and Uxbridge - Scugog Historic Homes & Heritage Buildings, both written by Paul Arculus and J.P. Hvidsten. It is currently listed on the Scugog Township Heritage Registry and featured under the "Century Homes" section at www.scugogheritage.com
