March 19, 2009-Another one bites the dust

Hello faithful reader.

Well, it looks like another piece of Whitchurch-Stouffville history will meet up with the wrecking ball soon.

The town is expropriating land to widen main street at Hwy 48, and this building is in the way.
March 31 is the dead line for some one to take the building, for free, but has to move it to an approved site. The town is not giving a lot of time to do this, so i suspect they just want to see it go.

Don't know why we have a heritage committee if they don't do anything to save these old bits of history.

The building was built in 1850 and among other things was a general store, post office and from 1990 this lunch shop and ice cream store.

Time will tell.

Thanks for listening
