17 Mille Roches Road

This house at 17 Mille Roches Road, Long Sault, was built by Hugh and Alice (Allie) Warner in the 1920s at Mille Roches. In the Ontario- Hydro relocation in the 1950s, it was identified as SL 408 and the 48th moved into Long Sault. Mr. & Mrs. Warner left the house on September 7, 1956 and stayed at "Stop-over House" #64, 4 Frost Avenue. The house was lifted off its foundation and moved on September 11, 1956, and placed on its new foundation the following day. Hugh and Allie returned to the house on September 14, 1956. The relocation of this home became Ontario-Hydro's iconic photograph, for images have been used in many publications. It was moved with the brick exterior, fireplace, and brick verandah posts intact. It has been said the Hugh Warner would not allow for any knotty boards to be used in its construction, and the stair-case and room trim is of British Columbia fir. Jim & Paulette Brownell bought this home from the Warner estate in 1976, then sold to Bernard Gagne in 1988. Jim & Helen (Dawkes) Brown bought this house in 1996 then sold to Bernard & Osithe LeBlanc in 2000.

Manson Warner house

This was the Manson Warner home from Mille Roches. This house was purchased from Ontario Hydro by Farrell Brown of Moulinette and moved to its Highway #2 location, east of Lakeview Heights, in October 1957. Ardell House Movers was contracted by Farrell Brown and a Barnhart family lived in the house at Mille Roches, at the time of its move. Farrell and Elva Brown and their two sons, Bill and Mike, lived in this relocated house until the completion of his new home in Long Sault, at the corner of Bethune and Kent Avenues.

The John Manson home

The John Manson home at Mille Roches. This Seaway house was the former John G. (1873-1954) & Caroline "Carrie" Frances (Osier) (1886-1971) Manson home from Mille Roches. Because this house was relocated through a non-Hydro moving company, we have little information on it. It was identified as SL 308, and it was moved to Lot 458, at 27 Mille Roches Road, Long Sault. This was a brick house in Mille Roches, but, before the relocation, the verandah and bricks were removed. It was moved as a frame building, then new siding and reconfigured verandah added at its new location.
Many will remember Lola June May (Waite) Manson- Corcoran-Baiks (1905-1994) residing in this home at Long Sault. She was John and Carrie Manson's daughter-in-law, having been married to George B. Manson (1907-1927).
For many years, this was the family home of Robert (Bob) and Kathleen (Quinn) Charlebois.
