I am retired and exploring the world on foot, by canoe and kayak. You see and experience much more this way. No luxury resorts on some tropical beach for me.
The original clock tower of Sydenham High School, dated 1873. This is one of the oldest schools still operating in Ontario. None of the original buildings remain.
The Sydenham foot ball field, built on an old garbage dump. Now one of the prettiest ball fields in the country.
The ball field behing Loughborough Public School. Very busy all summer. The toboggan hill is behind it. What more do you need?
Entrance to the Point Beach, base ball and foot ball field, and boat launching ramp, cenotaph, and Sydenham water treatment plant. The new library is on the left. A very precious and well used public area.
Trousdale's general store, the oldest continously operated general store in Canada since 1836, by one family. If they didnt have it in the store, they would get it, and at a good price. They have outlasted many major companies such as Steinburg's, Northern Telecom, hundreds of railways, Eaton's, A&P, and so on.
A huge cast iron pot and grind stone from the old mill. Sydenham lake is in the background. Sydenham had the only grist mill (for grinding grain) north of Kingston in 1836. The mill charged 1/12 of the grain as a fee to grind the farmers grain. It was operated by George W. Yarker.
Looking down Millhaven Creek at the dam. This is the view from the Cataraqui Hiking Trail built on the old Canadian Northern Railway bed.
The HILL, this is a long steep hill that faces north and can be icy in the winter. On one occasion, I could not get enough traction to make it to the top, I put my 4 passengers in the trunk of the car to get more weight on the rear wheels, it worked, we got home.
The original wing of Loughborough Public School. One of the oldest schools in Ontario. A Scottish name pronounced "Lo-bor-o"
The "Point" a popular swimming spot, and park for Canada Day celebrations. Purchased for public use by the Sydenham Women's Institute and Board of Trade, in 1947. I never saw a piece of garbage lying around the village while photographing it. Over 1,000 students attend the two schools daily.
The public boat launching ramp and mill pond.
Old stone and frame houses in Sydenham. The stone house is believed to be the oldest building in Sydenham. It started out as a store, then a dairy owned by A. Bradshaw, then F. Anglin who installed the pasturizing and bottling equipment.
One of the oldest houses around. This Georgian style is from the early1800's. It is built of local limestone, about a half metre thick. It is also believed to the the first house to have locally produced hydro power in 1915. The original township records that could have dated it, were deliberatly destroyed about 100 years ago.
The start of Millhaven Creek and the dam holding Sydenham Lake back, and the old mill water turbine. In 1836 this was the first grist mill north of Kingston which was essential for all farmers producing grain. There was one other at Kingston Mills and one at Millhaven.
St. Paul' Anglican Church, celebrating 175 years of service in 2012. Built in 1837.
A semi-underground house back 200 m. on the west side of the road to Gould Lake at the top of the big hill.
The new wing and bell tower of Loughborough Public School.
The band shell, popular for special events at the Point.
The cenotaph commerating those that served in our wars.
Formerly the Loughborough township hall, now the South Frontenac Township Hall, built in 1874. A new library is off to the right.
A cute stone cottage from early 1800's. Possibly the 1878 post office.
The village of Sydeham began about 1796 probably for water power. John Strange was the first registered owner in 1833. This Leffel turbine which put out 140 horse power, was built in 1921 and used until 1947. It provided power for a saw mill and grist mill. This site also provided the first electirc power to Sydenham in 1915.
I always enjoyed these street signs.
