“I asked Mr. Ferguson what he remembered of the country on his arrival in Brant Twp. and what seemed to remain impressed most on his memory was that the timber was all cut off the country and the landscape was a mass of tree stumps. Mr. Ferguson said that they lived in their log house for many years. It stood in about the same place as the present brick buildings on the Ferguson farm, Lot 20, Con. XIV, Brant. The house was constructed of elm logs, notched at the ends and with plenty of chinking between the logs, so that the house was very warm. He recalled how he liked to lay in bed and hear the rain falling on the roof just above his head, as he said there was just a few boards on the roof and then the shingles nailed over the boards.” From an interview with Bruce Krug July 1, 1952, part of the Krug family fonds at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.
