1848 AND 1937: LOCUST HILL; THE ALLINSON FARM


I would loved to have met Mr. Allinson. My dear friend, the late Bob Simpkins lived across the street from the Allinson Farm. Bob's family had the Simpkins Dairy Farm. He told of the time when he was a boy when Mr. Allinson took him to the attic in the old Burholme homestead and showed him the markings on the wall that were made by tenants who were fleeing the south via the Underground Railroad. Over the many years that the Allinson Farm was in existence, going way back to the earliest years when William Allinson acquired the property.There are many classified ads advertising the sale of chickens, eggs, apples, apple and other fruit trees.

THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF HAMILTON TOWNSHIP CURRENTLY HAS ON PUBLIC DISPLAY A NUMBER OF RARE RELICS FROM THE EARLY YEARS OF HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, INCLUDING MATERIAL RELATING TO THE ALLINSON FAMILY OF HAMILTON.
