Scope and content

This photo was taken in downtown Mille Roches, with the Provincial Paper Mill water tower on the left, and Garnet Cook's Esso service station on the bank of Bergin Lake on the right. This was the home of William Gilbert and Sarah Ramsey, located east of the Mille Roches Cemetery on Highway #2. Gilbert Ramsey was a well-respected businessman in Mille Roches, selling milk and vegetables from his horse-drawn wagon, in the community. At the time of the Ontario Hydro relocation, the William Andrews family were tenants in the home at Mille Roches. This was the 61st house moved to Long Sault and identified as SL 476. The Andrews family vacated the house on September 21, 1956, and stayed at stop-over house #215 at 38 Frost Avenue, Long Sault. On the day they vacated the house, the Hartshorne House Movers lifted the house off its foundation and then moved it to Long Sault. The house was placed on its new block foundation on Lot 361 at 45 Bethune Avenue on September 24, 1956, and the Andrews family moved back into the house the following day. For many years, this home has been owned by John and Sally Murdock.
