Kerry Lynn CrawfordIt was in my family for many years. I even owned it with my father and sister Kelly for a few years after my grandmother Ethel Crawford left it to us in the 1990s. Previous to that, it was the Simpson house, Great-aunt Ethel Simpson (my grand father’s aunt who raised him) and her husband Nelson ran it as as a retirement/care home maybe 1950s or 1960s. I am not sure exactly of the time frame. It always had an apartment upstairs. I recognize the clawfoot tub, curved banister, big front porch and rear view of the condos. There had been a sulkie track where the condos now reside, I would watch a man train his horse at noon and after school
Paul HodginsI remember Wally Crawford lived there. I worked for Wally at Leigh Instruments Awesome boss.That would be in the 80s
Craig WilsonWe rented the upstairs apartment in the late 90’s from an awesome couple Merv and John. They had 4 or 5 Papillon dogs. It’s definitely not a 2 bedroom apartment. Large bedroom and smallish living room. A few fun times were had trying to push the lushes up those stairs after a night at the Queens…
Chris GordonWe lived there from spring ’66 to spring ’67. At that time we had the upstairs apartment (which included the front room downstairs). It was our first home in Canada. IIRC Bob Cox and his family lived downstairs in the back apartment. We had a small garden in the back yard.

Carole FlintNote the roof ladder in the old photo. These were made of folding steel pieces. And ready for common chimney fires! Bill Flint
Karen DormanI lived across the street growing up. Mrs. Clyde Emerson lived there.
Jody TubmanSara Simpson Yeah, your birth was celebrated with a tree-planting…But I think we moved in the Fall of 1988. I remember being almost 16, and complaining that any remote chance at a social life was being yanked from me at 16. Mom also started work at Mike Fair’s earlier that year (which was the reason for moving to Franktown – equal commutes for the parental units)I think I have the bill of sale/mortgage papers for 16 Herriott in a box here.
Stacey McSheffreyHey! That’s my old house too. I hate what they did in the front. They ripped up all my mom’s gardens and took out the covered porch. Too bad–Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
