Summer and Fall 2018

Our second project looked simple at the start. Approximately ten feet of wall had collapsed and it looked like a straightforward rebuild. However, as we started cleaning up the fallen stones, we discovered that much of the adjacent wall was about to collapse as well. So ten feet turned into almost forty feet, and a pleasant weekend project ended up taking almost five months. Brave souls worked through subzero temperatures, 90 km winds and blowing snow to finish this segment on November 10, 2018. Thanks to Laura for being a gracious host and keeping the team well hydrated.

April 2018 - Stone Wall Restoration Weekend

Our first repair workshop was held on April 28-29 2018, where we worked on the wall at 505 Morrison Point Rd. (Accommodating Bay Trailer Park). This property is the west half of Lot 3 Concession 1, north of Morrison Point Road. The land was originally owned by Henry and William MacDonald, and then by 1834 by the Hubbs family (Robert, Benjamin, Robert Alva) until 1937 when the Smiths opened a trailer park and camp ground.
