Old Homestead on Sou-west River

     I tagged along with a friend the other day as he went to the shore to get seaweed to bank his house.  Here's an old homestead near the river - it appears to be used seasonally.
     The 1928 Cumin's Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows this property owned by Walford McEwen with 130 acres; Silver Fox; married to Kate Campbell.
     The Meacham's 1880 Atlas of Prince Edward Island show this property belonging to Thos Reid with 210 acres - it shows a house roughly in the location of this house - it's probably this house as the style would date to that period.
