Side view of Lapp's Cider Mill, Markham
I like old barns. They have so much character. One day on our way to a different destination, my husband pulled over so I could check this worn wooden building out. It was close to the road and easy to photograph.
Sign out front
Can you read this old sign? Not me, either.
Heritage siteBut also out front was this plaque.
And this window. Not a whole lot more for a building that has been declared a heritage site. So I "Googled" it and now I'm puzzled as to why a heritage site...
Lightening rod atop dormer
has so little information about it and why all the old machinery that WAS inside has been purchased by the Markham Museum and is now inside another cider mill a few miles north of where this one is.
So if this building not good enough to house its own equipment, why is it still a heritage site? Just askin'! It's still a great old place to photograph, though.
