     History
    Some old duffer saw me there and was inquiring about the property. He thought I was the new owner. He then filled me in...apparently, last tennants had kids, the septic tank always backed up, the kids mentioned this at school, then the Region of Halton Childrens Services investigated, and then they deemed it an unfit dwelling. That was 3 years ago.

    EDIT: (Spirit730)

    This house and site has a lot of history. Here is a little bit that was taken from an article:

    "George Johnson a slave from the United States, and one of the first settlers in Nassawageya, purchased the 200 acre farm in 1828. However there were two George Johnsons, known as Little George and Big George and they and their families lived together. It is believed they were called Little and Big because of their stature, not their ages. They apparently travelled the underground railroad together to settle in Canada. It's unclear, however, whether the two men were related although that could be presumed.

    When Little George died in 1865 at age 65, the land was left to Big George, who farmed and also worked with wood and iron. Big George was sexton at St. John's Anglican Church and his wife Emily was the organist. They raised four sons. The oldest son, also George, opened a carpenter's shop in Campbellville. Edward inherited the south-west quarter of his father's lot and had a log home accessed by a lengthy driveway off Guelph Line. James stayed on his father's farm and in 1875 his son, James R., took over the farm with his wife Clarissa (formerly of Oakville). The Johnson family was considered to be one of the founding families of St. John's Anglican Church, being involved in area worship from the early years. The stone church that was constructed in 1870 was often cared for by the Johnsons. James R. and Clarissa were in charge of St. John's cemetery from 1913 to 1933 and his methodical work in recording burials is said to be a blessing to today's genealogists."

    The Yellow house that is there now, built between 80 and100 years ago, was built on the original log cabin foundation. Plans are in the works to purchase the land and buildings and save them as a Heritage Site.
