We visited the old Ninth Line Bridge in Oakville, Ontario just south of Upper Middle Road.
Ford Drive now continues south of Upper Middle Road, but not long ago, Ninth Line continued straight south. A wide modern (1987) bridge is now completely hidden in the trees only meters from the corner of Ford Drive and Upper Middle Road.
Close to home, but not known to a lot of people is a pretty neat lake that we found by using Google Maps.
We not only found the lake, but on our way back, we ran into a man whose family owned the land that the lake is now on, and he told us how the lake came to be. It’s a pretty interesting story, and it’s always great to get some historical background on places we find.
