I was there a few years ago–the upstairs floor is sagging and the stairs were almost done–alot of damage inside –have pictures here or had somewhere—it must have been pretty once–now not so much
It’s the old store. There was also an old wooden grain silo and a bunch of old cars in the back field.
We rented a cottage on the lake for years and knew the owner of the property so we explored many times. I have tons of pictures
I remember when we were kids in the 60’s we would walk from the beach to the store for a treat. Sad to see it blending into the landscape
It was Cecil and Vera Closs that owned the store went there many times when we were kids still remember getting ice cream there
lavant mill road! I heard it used to be a shoe store once upon a time

Reblogged this on lindaseccaspina and commented:
new photos–Thanks Laura – I added it and credited you here.Documenting a Lanark Highlands Building–
The early photo with the car, was taken by my father in the early 50’s. My mother, Catherine Closs is on the left and my aunt Vera (Paul) Closs is on the right. The log building back by the tree was the original home on the property. There were Old Chum tobacco signs in all the windows of the newly constructed store. At one time, there were visible fill gas pumps off to the side. The store was a popular refreshment stop with the logging/lumber trucks that ran up Lavant Mill Road.
Thanks Terry..Ill add it..
