Anne Adams and Ruth Bush. The Shannon House, "The Old Hotel"
What makes a house a home? Some people might say, "the things each family puts in their house to make it comfortable. Other people might say "the people who live in it." Still others might say "the stories that happened inside those houses."
Most people who live in Prince Edward County will tell you who built the house they live in. They also know what it was built from-- brick, stone or frame -- and what kind of trees there are around it. Often the people living in the house now are descendants of the original owner.
To people who have lived on Waupoos Island, it is different!
Most family stories we heard when we asked about the houses answered in the same way. The parents moved to the mainland when the children were grown. The children went off to find work and a new family bought the house. So it seems, that except for the Shannons, no family occupied the same house for more than one generation. So the stories told weren't about "the family house. " They were about the family.
Both the Shannons and their house are exceptional.
The earliest records we can study, those of the Mississauga Indians before 1800, mention the Mountenay family and their very unusual log and stone house. The story goes that the Count de Mountenay was a prosperous fur trader from Normandy who chose to live on an island in English territory. He built a very sturdy house on Waupoos Island, which resembled a French chateau. Alexander Shannon found it unoccupied on his land grant when he came from Ireland around 1820. He moved in and married Margaret ------ from the Island, and they had a large family. Descendants of that family occuped the house until 1959, when the Oblates were granted a 25 year lease.
