Dr. Jones' House and Barn

Farm located on the edge of the Town. While the barns are still in use, the farm land is rented to others, indicating that the owner has another income, that of a rural doctor.

Housed in the collections at Fanshawe Pioneer Village is a unique piece of medical history belonging to Dr. William Anson Jones. Dr. Jones was born in Clandeboye, Middlesex County in 1867 and practised as a physician there until 1912 when he and his family moved to Ottawa. It was common for a rural doctor of this period to practise and see patients in their own home.
