Was it a UFO? A Meteorite or a Fuse Box? A Carleton Place Legend

this is the Buffam farmhouse now..

These photos below are from Jennifer Fenwick Irwin from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

“I have nothing on that house. It isn’t included in any of our maps as it is (was) just far enough out of town to be excluded. My Buffam file is just family trees. I do have the news clipping of the lightning strike of course, and that’s not the same house. The one hit by lighting was frame and had a different roof line.”

I asked Ted Hurdis

Before my time but it may have been the one before the brick place ? My family will swear it was a meteorite though not lightening. My sister Thelma Savard would know which one for sure. So I was one and in a highchair so 1957.
