Much more than just buildings

by Chopis1,

There is so much history in this place! It is not just the buildings but the surrounding area, to show future generations what was happening in this place, how it was a farm, how the inmates modified the landscape with ponds, trails, bridges, how they used the Clythe creek to irrigate the area, how they build the stone walls that surround the property, in my opinion, even the nearby quarry should be preserved as part of the history of the reformatory, all the stone used in Guelph came mostly from that quarry.

I love the ponds and the history of the place, it is something we need to preserve for us and for future generations. I tried pinning these places but it only allows me to pin within the highlighted area. What a shame! hope my comments are taken into consideration still.
