Broom Maker’s Shop


Original Location: Sherwood, Ontario (near Maple)

This shop is a one-and-a-half storey squared log home built on a random stone foundation. Thought to have been the first school in the Maple area, this little building was also used as a private home.

The upper level, with its low ceilings, is unheated and unfinished, and is now used for storage. The main floor makes for an ideal workshop, housing the broom-making equipment and living quarters.
