Welcome to the Meadowview Road (east and south side) web page
The purpose of this page is to trace the history of the property along the east and then south side of Meadowview Road in Canton, Oxford County, Maine, from the intersection with Laplante Road and Jewett Hill Road.
You can help by e-mailing scanned images, photocopies of photographs, or especially photographs themselves (they will be returned promptly) to firstname.lastname@example.org or by traditional mail to “Canton Tours” at the address at the top of this page.
A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.

|Just after Meadowview Cemetery, and still within sight of the cemetery from fall to spring when there are few or no leaves, is the cellar hole of W. Dunn. The principal axis (image below left) runs perpendicular to Meadowview Road with a smaller portion (image below center) at a right angle from the rear portion of the main hole and on the side away from the cemetery (i.e., the east side). Several bricks (image below right) are laying near the northwest corner of the main portion of the cellar hole.|
