One of the landmarks of Canadice is being torn down by George Blair. Many years ago the house was owned and occupied by Mrs. Fidelia Burch, known to the whole community as Grandma Burch. The house was built with a cellar kitchen which was constructed in the basement and where the family living rooms were located. In more recent years the Canadice Telephone Company owned and used it as a central office. It has been vacant for some time. Mr. Freed is the present owner.
