My Trip +

General Information

This historic home was built by James William Grout Nelles circa 1865, and later became the home of his son Willison Boise Nelles and his wife Henrietta, (who was called Ruby). Imagine 150 year ago, prior to housing developments, the farm stretching east to Baker Road and north of the railway tracks. There was once a large farm pond plunk in the middle of where Central Avenue is now.
