PHOTOS: Celebrating the future of the Bradley-Craig Farm

About 40 “Friends of the Bradley-Craig Farm” assembled for a community photo today in front of the big red barn.

We were celebrating this week’s great news: Richcraft Homes, the barn’s owner has decided to keep the landmark barn on Hazeldean Road. They’re seeking a future tenant and working with an architect on plans to renovate the barn for commercial use. The 19th century barn and the adjacent farmhouse are protected under the Ontario Heritage Act.

We were joined by friends young and old, some in costume, some with musical instruments.  The freshly fallen snow and lots of smiling faces made for a charming picture. Thanks to Rob and Mandy Hambly and organizing the photos and thank you to everyone who joined us.

  1. I had every intention of attending the Bradley-Craig barn photo event last Sunday at noon. So sorry I missed it, but the huge snow storm in Ottawa’s east end (Navan) made it just about impossible for me to get there. It appears to have been a wonderful happening. I am a great, great, great grandson of the original Irish immigrant (Joshua Bradley) who came to Hazeldean in 1826. My grandfather John Thomas Bradley (son of William Bradley and Charlotte Morris) came to Navan from Blackburn Hamlet in 1898 to open up a general store there. The store is still in its original location and has been in the Bradley name since then except for a period of 4 years in the early 1990s. It is now owned ( since 1994) by my son John Thomas Bradley and his wife Linda and is a real going going concern in the village of Navan just south of Orleans . Thanks for the opportunity to leave a comment.
