Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Region GIS shows the road and trail as road allowance.



Red lines are property boundaries.

I live on Otterbein, so I am fairly familiar with it. [Unfortunately, I don't live on THAT part!]... I've seen the signs, but never experienced any problems when walking the marked roadway.  [The only time I leave the roadway is to go onto the trail]

How was the area yesterday?  They had Emergency Road Closed signs up at Misty due to the flooding (risk).

Does anyone know anything about the house on the corner of Trussler and Ottawa?  It wasn't visible to the street until recently when they cut down all the trees.  It looks very interesting but run down.

No, but interesting find. That must be Ottawa St (or different name) at one point?

It like seeing ruins like this (the street) as it can tell an interesting story.

Wish I could help, but thanks again for the find.

I think there's a similar house at the bend where Townline meets Avenue Road in Cambridge. Can't get a decent view of it - too many trees in Street View and too blurry in satellite view.

I didn't notice the abandoned road until you mentioned it. Thanks for pointing it out!
