Description: Lakeshore Road, Conc 3 and 4 SDS, Lot 34. Colonel William Thompson, son of Cornelius Thompson, built Harwood around 1837, on Lot 34, Conc 3 & 4, SDS, on the Lakeshore Road, just west of Clarkson, at the end of a long lane. The property became part of the St. Lawrence Cement Company. Harwood was a one-and-a-half storey Ontario cottage. It was later purchased by the Wasson family and renamed Acacia Farm. The house was demolished in 1986. This is one of two original fireplaces located in the living room. The old bricks had been covered up but the bake oven and mantel were intact.
