Jane and husband Leo Windham moved into their beloved cottage – located at the intersection of Hwy 403 and Hwy 401 – about six years ago. The house was Leo’s childhood home, located on land the Windhams have owned since the 1700s, and it seemed the perfect spot for the couple to downsize, unwind, and enjoy their retirement.

That was the only hint that this little 30 ft. by 44 ft. white lap siding building sitting on top of a red clay hill in a grove of hickory trees could possibly be a church.”
