  • Abandoned House on Highway 9, Caledon, Ontario

    Abandoned House, Highway 9, Caledon

    These are some photos I took recently of an abandoned house on Highway 9 in the Caledon, Ontario area that borders New Tecumseth. Every day I drive by this house and I have always been curious as to what happened to this place. This particular house is located on Highway 9 between Mount Pleasant and Mount Wolfe roads, it is on the north side of the road.

    The photos are of the old farm house and what is left on the property. The house has been exposed to the elements and is decaying. There is two older boats and an older brown Chevrolet Monte Carlo also abandoned in the back which isn’t visible from the road. There is also a silo and a garage/barn type structure in the rear. The farm land surrounding the property appears to be kept up and worked even if this property rots.

    Despite the neglect to this old home I think it still has the potential to be restored if someone wanted to do so. I am not sure how long this house has been abandoned, it has some modern wiring and plumbing and wasn’t as overly trashed as I was expecting to find it inside however I believe it has been abandoned at least 5 years to my knowledge but probably a lot longer than that.

    These are great photos but I am sure someone owns the place. You might want to look at the land titles in Caledon to see who owns the property. Its kind of weird someone would just abandond a home. Thanks for the great photos.

    I do not know who currently owns the property/land, you would need to go to the town to find out that information.

    I believe the house is still well within salvageable condition but the longer it sits exposed to the elements the quicker it will decay.

    I’m not 100% sure but this looks like the house where a husband killed his wife and or family a while back i think in the 90’s. Don’t quote me on this, it just looks very familiar as i lived in Orangeville and Tottenham at the time

    We at the Hills of Heritage blog very much appreciate your focus on heritage homes and their care. We have taken the liberty of using one of your wonderful shots of this fine house as a focus feature: “Abandoned house in the hills of headwaters” and hope that we have your blessing in doing so. Only by drawing the local public’s and our politician’s attention to the neglect of buildings that add greatly to our sense of place and pride in our communities, can we hope to see owners held accountable. The Cheltenham brickworks are being saved. Keep up the good work documenting our heritage in pictures!

    I believe this was my uncle Ray Matson’s Holstein Dairy Farm in the 1950 – 1960+ . I spend my childhood playing with my cousin here , breaks my heart to see it like this, it was magnificent at the time and he was the # 1 Holstein Dairy breeder in Ontario. He was killed in a car accident along with his daughter Dianna and her expected baby due that week, and his mother in law, also his wife Doris and son in law survived the crash. His wife Doris later remarried my father Murray Graham . They lived in a new home she had built almost across the road from this farm .

    Hey, ran across this article. Very interesting as this was the house I grew up in. My family lived here for 12 years. All through the 90’s, we rented it off of a guy named Eugine, who is/was an accountant and his brother was a lawyer.
    Going through the semi recent pics, brought back many memories of such a great childhood. I have always thought to see this house fixed up and liveable again. My dad and I drove by our old home (that house), about ten years ago, and it was soo sad to see how dilapidated and neglected of a shape it was in. It was obviously not rented out after we moved out.
    I absolutely loved this home!

    I lived in this house from 1991 to 2004.
    yes we were the last ones to leave that place.
    The owners are a couple of brothers who live in Caledon.
    I know all the info on the place.
    The monte carlo belongs to the owner
    The boats belong to myself…didn’t have room to take them with us…would love them

    you can contact me…I can give you the info you need as to the owner is.

    Yes this is the house that Doris Graham lived in and yes she lived on the south side later and then she sold the one on the south side to a young single gentleman.

    No murders occurred in this house. There was a murder on mount pleasant on the south east side and it occurred on mothers day late 90’s early 2000.

    It was a wonderful place. We rented the place with our 5 children and held garage sales in the 40 X 80 steel shed.
