Part Lot 7

This property belonged to Frank Osborne in the 1940s and he built two cottages on the lot. The property lines in this part of town seemed to be in question between Dolly McLaughlan and Frank, who were brother and sister and whose properties adjoined. Frank sold his cottage to Mr. O. Brown and kept the one nearest lot 5 for his own use in the summers.

Later on that cottage was sold to Browns also but was torn down. The chandelier from it hangs in the Presbyterian Church. In 1998, Mrs. Brown still comes to her cottage for the summer. This one was built in 1950. Frank Osborne built this garage when he owned the property.
