Fab Findlay Fact: Lonesome Graves

by FCCA | 2 Comments

FabFindlayFactTwo graves on the grassy lot at the northeast corner of Bank Street and Analdea Drive are leftovers from a Methodist Cemetery, which was once connected to a Methodist church. The church closed in the 1930s and was sold to the Women’s Institute in 1940 to serve as a community centre until the Fred Barrett Arena opened in 1969. The church was eventually torn down, and over the years the graves – with the exception of the two that remain – were relocated to the Johnston’s Corners cemetery on Albion Road south of the OLG Casino. This fact was researched and submitted by Randy Ray, a Findlay Creek resident and co-author of nine books about Canada.
