this is my home and is at the end of the road. Google mistakenly shows the road to continue when in fact it is closed. As a result I get a constant stream of tourists expecting to go through or see the house.
Yes the town has put a deadend sign.
So please correct the map and remove the photo.
That must be an interesting place to live...how far is your home from the actual border?
CMolson - I actually sought out your home. There was a picture of it in a book called Lakes, Peaks and Praries from 1983, and at the time it was reportedly being rented out as a vacation home. I wanted to see if it still was. Can you confirm that it is the same place? I can email you the picture from the book if you don't know about it.
If you want to contact me off line, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm curious if you have any pictures of your home from when it was an active border station.
I have temporarily posted nearby the photo taken in 1983 by Michael Yamashita from the Lakes Peaks and Praries book. Is this the same place? I suspect that it is, but the purple paint makes it look much different. What do you think?
Too bad C Molson never answered. To answer your question, his house is only maybe 30 feet from the border. If you look closely, you can see the boundary marker just past the bird bath. He has a flagpole made from a real tree that still flies the maple leaf. Interesting that the road on the US side has almost completely reforested itself. I would love to see a photo of this place when it was still a border station.
