Photo from 1948 of the octagonal house located at the mouth of Lover's Creek on the east side. This was the first permanent home of the Westman family in Innisfil and was built by Alexander Sibbald. John "Jack" Westman purchased the house in 1945 after leaving the Air Force at the end of WWII. Jack and his wife Frances "Fran" and their three daughters Beverly, Janet, and Valerie had formerly lived in Ottawa for Jack's administrative job in the Air Force. This home was later owned by William Mitchell of Mitchell Boat Works. The photo shows Valerie Westman running towards the photographer with a woman seated in a chair on the lawn, her grandmother Ethel May Crooks, and their neighbour Tom Sheppard seated on the steps leading up to the porch.
