I think it's amazing when I see that the experts have moved a whole building onto wheels as they do where you live. It's fantastic! To move a building over here in England they have to literally take it down brick by brick and then put it back together once again..it takes months!How marvelous that this lovely old building will be back in it's rightful home.What a brilliant photograph of the tall tall column in the snow, who is that on the top? It reminded me of Nelson's column in London.Jane
Beautiful pics as always. Such a worthwhile journey. History is just so important. Hope you're keeping warm. Ros and Oscar
How very interesting,Thank you for the wonderful pictures. The snow looks cold,,,, Cheri
I've seen the Brock monument, but never the Secord house or this chapel. I'll have something to search out the next time I'm at the Shaw.
Sometimes the smallest little towns have the most interesting things!Great photos!xo Catherine
I'm always so thrilled when I see a lovely old building being restored. I wish this area was more interested in preserving our history and beautiful old homes, churches and our down town area. It is wonderful that the meeting hall has now reeturned to it's original site. Thank you for sharing.Blessings,Sallie
Hello. I appreciated your comment on my blog about my Charlie, and wanted to return the blog visit. I love places with history to them. Always so interesting. Lovely photos.
Unbelievable!!! When I visited America, I´ve seen a house moving on the highway. Fantastic :-)))And it´s really great, that this old house is able to move. As I said- unbelievable for me ...Enjoy your day- hugs, Ines
Oh watching buildings being moved is fascinating. imagine the planning that must have to go into it. Power lines, traffic lights and corners wide enough along the route. I bet it will be a wonderful place once brought back to it's former glory.
Fascinating to see a whole building being moved to a different location Susan. Its heartening to know that the chapel will once again stand where it is meant to be. A lovely story, and photos of a very wintry looking Canada. Stay warm and cosy!Jeannex
I love to see history preserved. That's how I like seeing our tax dollars work.
What a lovely chapel...the simple design of the building, the beautiful curves of the windows. I can just imagine the Methodist Hymns being sung so very long ago. Thank you for sharing a bit of history Susan.Blessings to you...Judy ox
How wonderful that this old meetinghouse gets to go home. It looks like it will make the move just fine. I love the picture of the monument! Your frozen post was full of gorgeous pictures.sending you hugs from here...
Oh Susan...how wonderful, I love stories like this...and those words 'echoes of my ancestors' just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling!!! I hope you will be able to show us more of this restoration...Dzintra♥x
Going back to whence it came. Such a good thing.
This is wonderful, Susan! I am so happy to see restoration in 2011!!!Wishing you a lovely new week,Zuzu
