This was the home of Helen Dickie of London. Helen was a fan of horses and rode them well in to her 80’s.

When she passed away on May 8, 2013, a developer purchased her estate. The house was still in a somewhat semi-preserved state when we visited it. (Thanks Talker for the find)

It had been cleared out somewhat but still had a time capsule appeal to it. There were 1930s and 1940s periodicals and newspapers, old china, and an old floor stereo unit.

The hydro company arrived while an explorer was inside, to cut off the power. As a result, the sump pump no longer operated. Within days the basement was beginning to fill with water. By a few weeks later, it would be several inches high.

In January of 2015 the City of London boarded up the doors. The house was demolished in October of 2015.
