There is one historic house left of the list and that is the house previously owned by the Lockett family, and currently owned by Jamie Carson and Catherine Dhavernas. According to Ryan Leary,  Senior Planner, Heritage, it will be added later.

I have no idea why it was not listed as it is built in the same period as the Michael Burke farm house, better known as the Graham farmhouse. The Locket house was original red brick but Colonel Fair would by farms, ‘modernise the farmhouse by stuccoing the outside,severing it off with a parcel of land  and sell it for a profit.

The owners of these historical houses received a letter with extensive documentation about the farmhouses, an aerial view of the property, part of a historic map by Putnam and Walling, 1860, a section on the architectural merits of the house, historic data and the criteria used to assign the Cultural Heritage Value according to Ontario Regulation 9/06

The Putman and Wallling map is included in this website at: https://aragonroadhistory.wordpress.com/historic-map-of-the-glenburnie-area-and-the-aragon-road/
