Photo of the backyard at Meadowbrook, showing a mostly empty field with one of the rental cabins to the right of the photo. Located on south half of lot 11, concession 14 of Innisfil (now Barrie), Albert Cheesman and his wife Betty (née Bowman) built a storey-and-a-half building with a walk out basement, living quarters upstairs, restaurant and variety store on the main level, Supertest gas bar, and cabins to rent out to travelers. About 100 feet off of highway 11/Yonge Street he built a row of three smaller cabins along the north fence line and one large duplex cabin along the west fence line. The establishment was named Meadowbrook, and the Cheesmans lived there along with their children Heather and Robert as well as a pony and some chickens until the business and property were sold in 1952 to Leonard Kearns.
