I'm not exactly wishing for snow, but am enjoying looking at photos of historic Sidney Township homes which just happen to have been taken on a bitingly cold late January afternoon.
These are all very interesting places. I thank ACO Quinte (David Bentley) for the 1990 tour notes which led me to these lovely spots. Lois Foster alerted me to the existence of the notes.
top: Sine Homestead - the Sine family, UEL's, were the pioneers in this area, called the Sine Settlement. This house sits on the original property, settled in 1820. It dates from 1870. A lovely working farm, with beautiful rolling fields (and a great tobogganing hill)
left: Windover-Ketcheson house - a unique tin-clad building
right: Williams -Manfreda house (1825), reportedly a plank wall house.
Hot chocolate anyone?
