According to locals, a barn fire took place on the property. Two children perished in the fire. It was rumoured that a male worker started the fire to cover up the murder of the two children, however this rumour was never confirmed. The oldest publicly recorded owners of the home were William Russell Chantler along with his wife Emma L. Chantler, and their son Clarence Russell Chantler. Clarence Russell Chantler was killed in action at the age of 20 in Somme, France. In more recent years the home was bought by Paul Michaelis and partner Dana Stehr. They sold the home in 2011. Current residents are unknown. UPDATED: FEBRUARY 22, 2020 AT 2:07PM
