Near where our trailer is parked is the very small hamlet of Cheltenham which sits along the Credit River east of Georgetown. We discovered this place while out exploring and, dare I tell you, they have a splendid little General Store that sells excellent ice cream cones of a generous portion for just $1.50. So on a hot summer’s day you know you will find us sitting on the porch of the General Store making ourselves comfy on one of the benches there licking our ice cream.
I’ve noticed that the hamlet has it’s own small cemetery. So I recently took my camera and wondered through. Charles Haines and his sons established Cheltenham in 1921. Imagine Ontario in 1921!
He and his family now rest in the cemetery with other local families, including the Lyons family (one of their descendants owns the trailer park we are in).
