Home of Mason Cogswell died 75 years
Historic town of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada built – 1850
Situated on the Northwest corner of Yonge and Center Streets in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, Mason Cogswell (1818-1893) lived beside his Wagonyard.
Wagon and Barrel making were two main industries associated with a milling- agricultural village. It was not uncommon to see wagons lined up the street until after dark, waiting their turn at Thorne’s Mill in the Valley to the North.
Mason Cogswell is buried in the Thornhill cemetary with his wife and six children, two of whom died before their second birthday and four, who died between the ages of twenty to twenty-four, likely victims of the epidemics of Cholera and Smallpox that swept through the village, the worst being in the winter of 1874.
