Save the Forward House in Iroquois, Ontario
We, the undersigned, ask and request that the Municipality of South Dundas, its administration and elected council, rescind the plan to demolish the 200 year old building in Iroquois, Ontario known as Forward House.
The Iroquois Waterfront Committee included the Forward House as part of their overall waterfront plan. The building has been used by the Lawn Bowling Club.
Forward House is an unprotected, historically significant property to Iroquois. It is one of only three original stone buildings from the old village of Iroquois still remaining. It is one of only six original buildings in Iroquois in their original location.
Much of Iroquois' history was moved, demolished, or flooded, in the St. Lawrence-Seaway project. The Municipality of South Dundas must rescind their demolition plan and preserve this building.
