Scope and content

Milton & Golda Matheson's home being moved to 49 Bethune St., Long Sault, on July 16, 1956. This was the first house relocated by Ontario Hydro into Long Sault and identified as SL 659. This was the Milton and Golda Matheson home at Maple Grove, one of the "Lost Hamlets". Maple Grove was situated in the vicinity of the power dam and dyke construction (today at the end of Second Street west in Cornwall), and this construction is clearly evident in the photograph. This home was vacant at the time of the relocation, as the Matheson's had sold the structure to Ontario Hydro. The house was lifted off its foundation and moved on July 16, 1956, the day that these photos were taken. The house was placed on its new foundation at Lot 359 on July 19, 1956. On October 1, 1956, the house was rented to Mr. A.P. Bertram. Many will remember the Fred Deppe family living here for many years. More recently, the home was owned by the Grant Winchester family, however it was recently sold in 2021.
