We have recently learned that the John Cawthra Awrey home in Hillsburgh, Ontario has recently been sold to the County of Wellington.  The home and adjacent mill pond will be preserved, however the house will be returned to it's original design.  Attached to the home will be a new public library.  John was listed on census records as a farmer, but was much more.  He built a grist mill, brick plant, potato storage among other things all in Hillsburgh.
The house overlooks the mill pond and the opposite side of the pond the former home of his brother Isaiah.

Update:  The library is now open
