In the years following the American Revolution, thousands of Loyalists moved north into Ontario, Canada. Governor John Graves Simcoe sent out surveyors to divide up Southern Ontario with a super-grid of lines and concessions that came to define the landscape, as the land was cleared for farmland.

The House on Limekiln Line is an extraordinary artifact, addressing this 220 year old heritage, yet so completely modern.
