Initial Exploration

On Saturday, junks and I were taking a Streetcar on Roncesvalles to another site, and noticed this out the window. After getting chased out of the other site, we decided to head back. Because we were near by, we went to check out the Canadian Linseed Oil Mill Company. We thought we'd head back to Roncesvalles and see if we could have any luck with the Church. Boy were we in luck. The Church, along with it's Parish Hall, and a KFC were being demolished to make way for a new condo development (just what the city needs...). So we walked around the back, and saw a VERY obvious entrance. We walked in, and went towards what was the main hall. Immediatly we saw a gentlman sitting on the stage. Turns out, him along with a few other people were building a Church in Kirkland Lake, and were removing some artifacts from this location to bring up there.

They were all a friendly lot who didn't seem to mind us being there, and had no problem with us checking the place out and taking pictures. We spent a good 3 hours here, looking at everything. It had a stairway which reminded us of the Blair Witch Project...not to mention the basement of this place completly creeped us out.

On the way back, we saw some bicycle cops riding by, who turned around to ask us what we were doing, etc... Friendly bunch, they even let us take their picture!

Unfortunatly, we learned that this location was going to be demolished on Monday May 17th, I'll be sure to swing by and see what the hap is.


More pics to come soon! (have to edit them abit)
