This summer cottage, west of Hawkesville, is in a farmer’s field next to Boomer Creek, across the road from Smithside school. It has been there as long as I can remember.
I can think of only a few cottages that survive on farms in Mennonite country. Usually placed next to rivers, these simple dwellings are not habitable in the winter. I assume that only their granddaddy status preserves them.
On the Conestogo River, there are two examples. The first is Cottage by the Conestogo, Image #3046. The second example is Cottage on the Flats, Image #2916 and Afternoon at Three Bridge, Image # PS123.
