This dry stone wall is all that remains of the Georgian Lodge, the home of John J. Drummond and his family. In 1900 Drummond opened the Canada Iron Furnace in Midland, which became one of the town’s largest employers. At its peak, the company employed about 350 men and its payroll was said to be the largest in Simcoe County. The family enjoyed its role as part of the social elite, and helped to shape the economic interests of the fledgling town at the beginning of the 20th-century. The wall not only acts as a reminder of the economic and social history of Midland, but is also an example of a simple and masterful craft that is seldom seen and preserved today.
