In the Wednesday, June 29th, 2011 issue of the West Prince Graphic, page 3 (see below) - is an article about the demolition of this house. When someone came in to take the mantle before demolition Mrs. Pedersen, the owner, found four old photos (one a tin-type) I'd say dating from the 1870's - they don't know who the people area. There was alot of history here in this old house.

Dunbar House, Montrose - update
The old house was demolished yesterday - they say there were batts flying everywhere. I learned more about the house. This was the Montrose Presbyterian Manse and sold to Stephen McNeill 1893-1984 (son of James and Elizabeth (Jeffery) MacNeill) of Alma. Stephen operated a cobbler shop from here - he learned the trade from his father. Stephen sold it to Eric Dunbar who later sold it to his brother George Dunbar.
