Collapsing shack

This collapsing shack in Omemee was found through google maps a few days before I took these pictures. The shack is extremely easy to access, and is right on the road. The road is not busy, so I didn't run into any problems while exploring it. However, with some bad luck, the neighbours across the road or a vehicle could catch you at the wrong time.

The doors of the shack were falling down, but I was able to push them so that I could enter easily enough. Inside the shack I found a pair and a half of old wooden crutches, a couple pieces of an old bedframe, a few tires, and some old petroleum cans, one of them that was created at the latest in 1999 (This is when Petrofina Canada changed its company name)

This property had two other buildings on it back in 2008, but one of them (a shipping container) was remover between 2008 and 2018. The other more substsntial building on the property was remover sometime after 2018. This location can be found very nearby historical landmark Doube's Trestle Bridge, and even has an old driveway leading to the rail trail.

This is the Google Maps street view of the location from 2012. Not much had changed since then…
