This home has a lot of steeped history being built in 1861 by Abraham Rawlinson, it was the last house to pass for the settler movement going west. The home was purchased by William Terwilliger in 1870, who was a local entrepreneur in freight and livery. It had 80 acres at one time, and later became a service station in 1927 and the adjacent grounds a campground called Maple Camp. It was due to be demolished in 1994 until a local group purchased the home from the family members. The interior has some modifications form the original, but still does show the old type facility like it may have existed in late 1800's.
It is now a restaurant and the food was good. They have a downstairs and upstairs to partake the menu.
Address: 802 Main st
