Scope and content

Top left - This was the Dube/Dubeau family home of Mille Roches, being closer to the hamlet of Maple Grove than downtown Mille Roches. This was the 123rd house moved to Long Sault, and it was identified as SL 479. The F. Dubeau family left this house on March 15, 1957, and the house was moved on March 21, 1957. The next day, the house was placed on its new foundation on Lot 279, - 2 Saunders Avenue. The Dudeau family returned to the house on April 1, 1957, and probably walked from Stop-Over house #64, on Lot 277, just two properties to the east on Frost Avenue. For many years, this home was the residence of Daisy Fowler, but many will remember the long-time residency of William & Diane (Gowsell) Carter and family.

This photo was taken at the curve in Mille Roches, with the Percy & Estella Grocery Store and "The Eatwell - Better Beds For Less" Bed & Breakfast to the right of the house being moved, in this photo. The Eatwell was formerly a hotel, known as the MacGillivary Hotel and then the Angie Norman MacDonald Hotel.
