New London Farmhouse Restored 1992

     This article appeared in the RE*NEW Magazine in the Feb-Mar 1992 issue.  The house was surely destined to be lost when the Shoalts came along and saved it!  It's been 21 years since the restoration and its as good as the day it was built / restored.
 Below is the only image I have on file for this house, taken around 2005.
Here's a link to Google Maps Street View.
     Cummin's 1928 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows John Coles owning this property with 80 acres.  John Coles was married Cora Bert - at the time they had the following children: Annie, Edith, Archibald, Ethel, Lee and Earl.
     Meacham's 1880 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows Jno Coles living here with 50 acres of land.
