Built in 1850 by Thomas Clark Macklem, Macklem Manor became the headquarters for a detachment of troops during World War I. The 44th Lincoln and Welland Regiment, who guarded the Welland River and Canal, were billeted there. The manor was destroyed by fire in 1927. Today, the Paradise Point Bed & Breakfast is near the historic site.
There will be a poster of a historic photo on site at this location during the summer of 2017.
